For more than 100 years, the University of British Columbia has lifted its gaze to the horizon—steadily focused on the long view, with all its promise and potential. And in that relentless pursuit of possibility, UBC has secured its place on the world stage: a top-ranked research university that today leads the way in climate action and global impact, with a deep commitment to Indigenous reconciliation and a more inclusive and equitable future for all.
From its earliest days UBC has stood in service to the future, educating generations of learners to reach for the greater good. Indeed, our strategic plan—Shaping UBC’s Next Century—commits us to inspiring people, ideas and actions for a better world. Now, as UBC powers forward in the wake of a global pandemic, the call for progressive, integrated solutions to pressing real-world problems is more clear and urgent than ever.
FORWARD, the campaign for UBC, will raise $3 billion and activate the power of our global alumni by doubling alumni engagement. The campaign will benefit research, teaching and learning across both the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses in three key areas—advancing healthy lives, creating solutions for the planet, and shaping thriving societies. Donors and alumni are the catalyst to make it happen. Together we will shape a better world.
