Background to Alumni Personal Profile Readers

Knowing more about prospective students with a personal profile in the UBC application process helps identify those who will flourish at UBC not only because of high grades but also because of the experiences and ambition they bring with them.

Formerly known as Broad Based Admissions Alumni Readers, Alumni Personal Profile Readers support UBC’s strategic goal of increasing representation of underrepresented and/or marginalized communities at UBC by assessing students holistically.
