University of British Columbia (Bronze Sponsor)
The University of British Columbia is celebrating the centenary of the granting of its charter in 1908. In the past 100 years, UBC has grown into one of Canada's finest universities. Measured by any criterion-the intellectual caliber of its students, the quality of faculty teaching and research, the professionalism of its staff-UBC is an outstanding university, and plays a vital role in the cultural, social, and economic development of the region and Canada. In recent years UBC has seen dramatic changes. Enrolment has grown from 31,000 students in 1995-96 to more than 45,000 today, with a corresponding expansion of UBC Vancouver's academic core, including new buildings dedicated to science and engineering, forestry, the health sciences, and the library. The growth of UBC has extended beyond the gates of main campus to the opening of three additional campuses: UBC Okanagan, UBC Robson Square, and UBC Great Northern Way, each offering unique communities of learning and research. UBC has much to offer and underlying this wealth of offerings is the belief in several vital principles that in one way or another inform all aspects of learning and research at UBC: active engagement in civil society, the pursuit of sustainability in its social as well as its environmental forms, and commitment to global citizenship.
