Objectives for students
The overarching goal in the Student Strategic Plan is to establish an environment in which students at UBC can access all that the university has to offer, develop in personally meaningful ways, and build competencies that enable them to improve the world. The student objectives under the commitment area of Transformative Learning are:
I am inspired and able to engage in learning within and outside of my formal studies.
I have developed as a person through education, research, and engagement at UBC.
I can navigate and make a difference through my career and life beyond UBC.
How UBC will help
Our faculty deliver courses and programs that equip students with disciplinary expertise and interdisciplinary perspective, and regularly update what and how they teach to reflect the changing needs of learners and society.
We provide coordinated and personalized programming and support for students in navigating academic and career pathways, helping them make the most of their time at university and build the skills for agility and success beyond UBC.
We place “learning-by-doing" at the core of the educational model, especially through student research, giving students varied opportunities to reflect and reason based on real events—a process we know enriches and deepens learning.
