Our Vision

We belong to a workplace in which we strive to maintain our values of academic freedom, mutual respect, integrity, dignity and inclusivity in the forefront of our minds. Faculty and staff are invited to participate in the development of institutional goals and are regularly encouraged to engage in an open exchange of ideas and opinions.

Focus on People: Workplace Practices at UBC is a contributing framework towards the realization of the University’s values. It sets out strategies and corresponding initiatives to consider how we may improve our daily work practices in order to create an outstanding work environment for staff and faculty members at UBC. We want to retain and attract outstanding people, and support faculty and staff in achieving what is important in their professional and personal lives. At the end of the day, it is vital to the success of the university that we recognize and celebrate the inherent value in each other’s contributions to UBC.
