In September 2011, the University of British Columbia launched the most ambitious fundraising and alumni engagement campaign in Canadian history. The evolution campaign aims to raise $1.5 billion dollars for students, research and community engagement. From medical research to sustainability to scholarships, find a project (https://startanevolution.ubc.ca/find-a-project/) that you would like to be a part of.
For example a gift to Green College will support the programming that makes it an inspiring collaborative community. The College's main academic endowment funds interdisciplinary, non-curricular programs and activities, including the interdisciplinary lecture series.
UBC’s emeriti are an under-utilized resource. Many contribute to the academic work and reputation of UBC through lecturing and mentoring, research and publishing, and participation in foundational university committees. UBC’s Emeritus College will significantly strengthen these important bonds and increase UBC’s research capacity. The college will also provide emeriti with a supportive retirement pathway to an active UBC community, allowing them to retire when it is right for them while also maintaining their desired level of activity and connection. In addition, the college will enable emeriti to retain their academic identities and continue to pursue their academic and creative interests.
