About Okanagan Campus Research

UBC's Okanagan campus seeks to excel internationally in research and teaching, and to be a leader in discoveries and scholarship that serve as the wellspring of scientific, technological, social, cultural, and organizational innovation in Canada and beyond.

By conducting basic and applied research of international acclaim, and by educating graduates with outstanding creative and analytical skills, the University aims to enhance its impact on society. UBC is committed to the principles of academic freedom, and in particular that faculty members are free to explore any avenue of inquiry in their research and publications. UBC actively supports its faculty members in engaging in unique and disparate areas of research.

Research activity at UBC’s Okanagan campus is guided by two plans: Place and Promise: The UBC Plan, which is a UBC-wide strategic plan, and The Strategic Research Plan, which is a plan specifically developed to guide research activity on the Okanagan campus.

Research Strategy

Looking to the future

The Okanagan campus has reached its enrolment targets set in 2005, and much of the capital construction identified in the Campus Master Plan has been completed. It is now time to embark on a comprehensive visioning process for the future, and that process will begin in the latter part of 2013. This will inform future strategic plans for research, academic programming, and an updated Campus Master Plan looking ahead to 2035.
