Government & Community Engagement
Building respectful, reciprocal relationships between government & communities and UBC is central to the university’s vision of “inspiring people, ideas and actions for a better world” and foundational to excellent teaching, learning, and research. We want to promote and enhance strategic relations and communication of vision and priorities with all levels of government.
Campus as a Living Lab
UBC operates and controls its utilities. It has a fleet of over 300 vehicles and an ever growing population. For research purposes, it is a small city. The campus can be used as a living laboratory where technology and different projects can be deployed in a large scale.
