Teaching, Learning and Research

In order to find creative solutions to the ecological, economic and social challenges of our time, we must explore, advance and apply our understanding of sustainability.

As a global centre for research and teaching, consistently ranked among the 40 best universities in the world, we are committed to providing an exceptional learning environment that advances a civil and sustainable society.

Student Engagement

We believe that each student, regardless of their degree program, should have access to sustainability education, including applied experiences such as paid internships, experiential learning projects, and student engagement programs.

Faculty Engagement

At UBC, we are are working to embed sustainability across the curriculum. The UBC Sustainability Initiative supports faculty members to create sustainability oriented courses, and facilitates collaborations in support of sustainability research.
