About Arts Academic Advising


Working with faculty, academic programs, and campus partners, we guide Arts students as they create their academic pathway — with reflection, intention, and enriched learning experiences — from the faculty’s diverse offerings.


We strive to be a catalyst for service innovation, furthering purposeful, developmental, and transformative learning for students as they explore the significance and potential of their Arts degree.


We commit to life-long learning: a transformative process through which we encourage curiosity, refine our praxis, and grow as educators and learners.


We build respectful, proactive and strategic relationships internally and across UBC’s campus community in order to craft successful shared outcomes for all stakeholders.


We respectfully acknowledge and value the beliefs, feelings and perspectives of others and believe in their ability to learn, grow and take agency.


We work intentionally and creatively to learn about and address historical and current systemic issues in fairness and opportunity.


We engage in practices that are reliable, principled, and accountable in order to ensure that our work is accurate, relevant and responsive to the dynamic landscape at UBC.
