The Faculty of Arts at UBC has embarked on an ambitious second century. This plan sets out our faculty’s goals and strategies, and identifies new opportunities for research excellence, transformative learning, local and global engagement, and collaboration.

Our students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community partners participated in developing the university-wide plan — Shaping UBC’s Next Century — which informs and complements our faculty plan.

We aim to provide demonstrable and measurable goals to which we can be held accountable. We will chart our progress toward the goals embodied in the plan and capture our impact for external reviews and annual reports.
