Leadership development

UBC's leadership programs further an important dialogue around the very meaning of leadership at UBC. What we believe about leadership has a profound influence on what we do as leaders and how we enact leadership.

Leadership programs fostering professional and personal growth among faculty and staff in our community, and support Catalyst #2: I can grow my career and Catalyst #4: I am inspired by diverse leaders who live UBC’s values of the Focus on People 2025 framework. They also contribute to furthering authentic conversations for colleagues to hold each other accountable for inclusive and impactful leadership across the university.
