UBC start an evolution Campaign Update

President's Message       Report on Giving       Alumni Weekend

President's Message

The past year has been a momentous one for UBC as, together with our donors and alumni, we launched the most ambitious fundraising and alumni engagement campaign in Canadian history. The start an evolution campaign aims to raise $1.5 billion dollars for students, research and community engagement and to double the number of alumni involved annually in the life of the university by 2015.

We have made tremendous progress in our first year of the public phase of the campaign, raising $194 million in 2011/12 – making a total of $900 million so far – and engaging 35,000 alumni over the same period. 2,500 alumni donated their time and skill as volunteers. It is an inspiring start that will keep us focused on the enormous task we still have ahead.

Thank you for your continuing support of UBC.

President and Vice-Chancellor

Alumni Weekend

Held each spring, Alumni Weekend just keeps getting better. It's a magnet for the fun-loving, the curious, and those who secretly wish they were still students. It's a boot camp for your brain, a place to find your muse, and an occasion to celebrate community or relive some of the best years of your life. Whether you want to idle the afternoon away in one of the university's magnificent gardens, learn how to DJ, or discuss the mysteries of the universe, we have it covered. Come curious, leave enlightened.
