UBC is one of the world’s leading public universities and a dynamic place to work, research, and teach. What makes UBC unique as an employer is the diversity of people who contribute to our workplace experiences. Our global community includes faculty, staff, student employees, post-doctoral research fellows, graduate students, as well as Indigenous partners, alumni, and colleagues at other institutions.
The Vice-President, Human Resources portfolio’s efforts are guided by the university’s strategic plan, Shaping UBC’s Next Century, and Focus on People 2025, UBC’s five-year strategic people framework. We are committed to encouraging individuals at UBC to realize their full potential, so that, in turn, the university leads as a first-choice place to work and learn, now and in the future. We are also dedicated to enabling those at UBC to live the university’s values (excellence, integrity, respect, academic freedom, and accountability), in all our activities, interactions, and decisions.
Our portfolio’s strategic and practice areas create and sustain an inclusive, vibrant, and safe workplace, provide opportunities for career growth, innovation, and leadership development, as well as offer supports for health and wellbeing. I encourage you to connect with us and learn about our initiatives, programs, and services.
Each one of us at the university play an important role in its success, and in making UBC an inspiring place to work, research, and teach. I invite you to think about and share how you and your colleagues are shaping your experiences, as well as those of the wider UBC community and beyond, for the better.
Vice-President, Human Resources
