Provost’s Priority Childcare Placement Program (PCPP) Application Process

Request for Consideration and supporting documentation for the Provost’s Priority Childcare Placement Program (PCPP) may be submitted anytime and will be reviewed regularly

In an effort to improve access to on-campus childcare, this program, through the Provost office, provides a limited number of new faculty members with higher placement on UBC childcare waitlists in order to support strategic recruitment and retention priorities. Tenure stream faculty candidates who are interested in being recommended for this program should discuss potential access with the head, director or selection committee chair in the academic unit. There is an additional monthly premium for daycare spots achieved through the PCPP, which in some cases the Faculty or department may cover. (Please note Post Doctoral Fellows are not eligible for this priority stream, but are welcome to apply along with all other faculty and staff through regular channels with UBC daycare).
