Units in the Portfolio

Planning and Institutional Research

The mission of Okanagan Planning and Institutional Research (OPAIR) is to provide visionary leadership and direction for UBC’s Okanagan campus information support activities that impact policy, planning and management decisions through research, analysis, presentation and distribution of relevant and timely information. Through these efforts we aim to support campus planning, strengthen student learning, and promote deeper understanding of the nature and quality of education at UBC.

Centre for Teaching and Learning

Our mission is “To lead, support and promote teaching and learning excellence, innovation and scholarship at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.”

The Centre for Teaching & Learning serves all facilities and schools at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. The Centre also provides support for graduate students/teaching assistants, post-doctoral fellows/scholars, and sessional/adjunct faculty.

Aspire Learning and Teaching Fund

UBC Okanagan’s new Aspire Learning and Teaching (ALT) Fund supports curriculum change, innovative teaching practices and learning environment enhancement as envisioned in Aspire. The fund enables faculty members to make strategic changes within existing, or implement new, undergraduate and graduate academic programs that are more flexible, interdisciplinary, experiential and/or collaborative.

The ALT Fund’s main goal is to transform student learning at UBC Okanagan

International Office

The International Office within the Office of the Provost provides strategic direction and support for UBC’s international activities. We advise on partnership development and serve as a central unit for coordinating the campus’ international activities and portfolios. The Okanagan International Office works closely with UBC Okanagan Faculties and units and collaboratively with the UBC International Office located on the Vancouver campus.
