Welcome back, everyone, to a new school year!
The beginning of the new academic year brings a feeling of promise and excitement at the University. The energy and spirit our students bring back to campus is one of the best and most rewarding reasons to be part of the UBC community.
This year will be a momentous one as we continue to build a strong community with this year’s new and returning students, faculty, and staff. There will be lots of opportunities for growth and for change, and it is important for us all to support one another but also ourselves – in that light, I encourage you to take advantage of some of UBC’s wellbeing offerings:
- Students: Take the wellbeing quiz and learn how to support different areas of your health
- Faculty & Staff: Learn about the Wellbeing Initiative at the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses, and find out about health and wellbeing courses and events for faculty and staff.
We wish all UBC students the best for a great year ahead, and a bright future!
– Lisa Castle, UBC Vice President Human Resources
