Place and Promise: The UBC Plan articulates the University's core commitments in student learning, research excellence, and community engagement. Also spelled out in Place and Promise are the goals and actions designed to realize the University's vision for the future: "As one of the world's leading universities, The University of British Columbia creates an exceptional learning environment that fosters global citizenship, advances a civil and sustainable society, and supports outstanding research to serve the people of British Columbia, Canada, and the world."

Place and Promise includes separate plans for each of the University's commitments, along with individual goals for academic and administrative units at the Okanagan and Vancouver campuses. As a living document, Place and Promise will evolve with the University and drive its academic and financial decisions. For further information, visit Place and Promise (
