UBC alumni live and work in over 150 countries around the world. We keep in touch with those grads – and they keep in touch with each other – through our Global Alumni Network. We have a number of Alumni Leadership Committees and Global Alumni Ambassadors who help represent alumni UBC in cities around the world and strengthen the alumni community in their region. They are available to answer local questions you may have, and they help bring fellow alumni together through virtual or in person gatherings, and other types of initiatives, too.
Look for your local contact below, or reach out to the alumni UBC team to explore openings in your region!

Global Alumni Ambassador Spotlight
Fernando Murillo, PhD’18 - Chile
- Intrepid hiker (including arriving to the top of an active volcano)
- Chinese food lover
Chelsea Guy, BHK'06 - Singapore
- My first name is actually Elizabeth, even though I’ve always been called Chelsea because my parents wanted my first name to be formal. My full name is Elizabeth Chelsea Guy.
- My last name is actually supposed to be Ngai. When my grandfather immigrated to Canada from China, he told the immigration officer what his last name was. He interpreted it as Guy, so we are the Guys in Canada!
- I have two labradoodles - one caramel and one chocolate coloured.
Audrey Tong, BA'16 – Ottawa
- Policy Wonk
