I am often asked how we are addressing the question of student well-being. Obviously, one aspect is the student services we offer, which can be found here https://students.ok.ubc.ca. But equally importantly, we try to approach well-being in a holistic and proactive way; hence the goal to make this campus food secure, to bring well-being into the classroom, to increase work opportunities for students and so on. In the next edition of the newsletter I will provide a more detailed update on these initiatives.
I am also asked about my vision for the campus. I believe that visioning is a collective endeavour and in that sense, Outlook 2040 encapsulates a vision for the campus that I am delighted to embrace. Should you be interested, I have articulated some more thoughts on the my interview which was published on June 24. Thanks to Kate Hunter and her team for publishing this!
