UBC Community Conversations

Engaging in open conversations on an ongoing basis with the UBC community about planning and development as well as community programs.

As part of UBC’s commitment to community engagement, Campus and Community Planning (C+CP) has created ten engagement principles to enable constructive dialogue with our community. Through these principles, we are launching a new initiative, UBC Community Conversations, in partnership with the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA). 

Designed to strengthen communication with UBC students, faculty, staff and residents, these two-way conversations will include updates on upcoming planning, development projects and community programs.

Join us for UBC Community Conversations

You are invited to join your neighbours and meet staff from the University Neighbourhoods Association (UNA) and UBC Campus + Community Planning. This a great opportunity for residents to meet Johanne Blenkin, UNA Executive Director, Aubrey Kelly, President and CEO of UBC Properties Trust, and Michael White, Associate Vice President, UBC Campus + Community Planning. 

We look forward to discussing some of the current and emerging planning issues for UBC’s neighbourhoods. Do you have a concern or question? We want to hear from you.

Date: Monday, November 27, 2017
Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Place: Old Barn Community Centre, 6308 Thunderbird Blvd

This is an accessible and family-friendly event, food and refreshments will be provided.

UBC Community Conversations are presented in partnership by the University Neighbourhoods Association and UBC Campus + Community Planning. We value this opportunity to hear from you and to share information on planning and programs in UBC’s neighbourhoods. Together we can create a complete community at UBC.
