In anticipation of the 50th Anniversary of UBC Dentistry in 2014, an extensive renovation of JBM is underway to renovate into a modern facility for teaching, learning, research and patient service. The first floor includes a new Graduate Student Commons and plans to update the current lecture hall, conference room and meeting room. The second floor renovations include six new independent and group learning conference rooms, a large seminar room, student lounge, computer learning centre and a new graduate specialty clinic. The third floor is an extensive renovation and upgrade of various labs and seminar rooms with an extensive plan for various naming opportunities.
With the support of donors, UBC Dentistry has created a learning environment that reflects the Faculty’s commitment to offer the best experience possible for students. With additional support, the JBM renovations can be completed, providing more clinic and lab facilities for expanding undergraduate and graduate programs.
