Imagine UBC

UBC is honoured to welcome new students, faculty and staff to our campuses each September. You belong to a community enriched with curiosity, opportunity, respect and diversity. As you begin your career with us, I hope you take a moment to reflect how your role impacts the more than 40,000 students for whom we aspire to provide transformative learning, and, equally important, how we can continue to foster your personal and professional aspirations. My warmest welcome to you for joining us and I look forward to seeing you at our fall events.

Staff and Faculty new to the University since September 2011 are invited to attend the Pep Rally on September 4th.
