Consultations + Engagement

Your input is important to us, that is why we employ a variety of public consultation and engagement activities, giving you the opportunity to get informed about new plans or proposed changes, be heard, and shape our campus community. It’s an important and essential part of what we do.

Our engagement processes vary in their level of public involvement, ranging from simple notification to consultation through to partnering. The types of engagement we use vary from project to project and are determined by the mandate, impact and scope of interests for each project.

The range in types of engagement we use is highlighted below, along with some examples of methods:

For each planning and development project we typically inform and consult with the UBC community, including student government, faculty leadership, the University Neighbourhoods Association and our off campus neighbours. These leadership groups and community representatives also participate more closely on projects through joint problem solving, as well as collaborate and partner with us on community programs, where appropriate.

We use the International Association of Public Participation as a resource to guide our engagement practices.
