Student Academic Success

Students from the local community, across the region, and around the world choose UBC’s Okanagan campus for its unique learning environment. It is a place where students contribute to research alongside their professors, and other students, and the community engage in shared and mutually beneficial learning experiences.

The Office of the Provost is committed to delivering on UBC’s strategic plan: Shaping UBC’s Next Century through initiatives that enhance the student academic experience.

 

Projects

Student Learning Hub

The Student Learning Hub, which opened in September 2019, streamlined undergraduate student access to academic supports in order to enhance the learning experience. It inspires students to succeed through quality, peer-supported learning programs, including support for writing, languages, math, science, and the Supplemental Learning program. This project unifies the services in a single high-profile location in order to remove boundaries and provide seamless access for students. This project specifically addresses Strategy 15: Student Experience, as well as Strategy 2: Inspiring Spaces.
