FORWARD, the campaign for UBC, will raise $3 billion and activate the power of our global alumni by doubling alumni engagement. Together we will shape the future for a better world in three key areas: advancing healthy lives, a healthy planet, and healthy societies. The campaign will benefit research, teaching and learning across both campuses. Help be a catalyst to make it happen through giving, volunteering, and engaging with us to amplify UBC’s impact.
Ways to Engage
