We are excited to announce a new learning series pilot which spans the academic year’ 23/24, developed intentionally to support your professional development goals. These series are being offered as a way to provide on campus opportunities for faculty and staff to utilize their professional development funds for campus-based programming. The fall series will be focused on resilience and respect, aligned with Thrive.  The winter series will be focused on performance and growth.

For detailed information, please visit UBCO HR Events Calendar.

The Length of Service Awards is a long-standing tradition at UBC, and one way in which we recognize the commitment and service of our great staff and faculty. The program recognizes milestones of 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years of service.

We have begun qualifying staff and faculty’s years of service based on several factors including uninterrupted service (for more than one year). The years of service for the 2023 honorees begin on the years 1978 (45 years), 1983 (40 years), 1988 (35 years), 1993 (30 years), 1998 (25 years), 2003 (20 years) and 2008 (15 years). If you have not heard from our office this year and would like to identify as beginning your employment on one of these dates, please reach out to,  Workplace Learning & Engagement.

Be a part of this exciting event by planning and staffing a table on Thursday, August 31, 2023, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. This is an excellent opportunity to showcase how your department, faculty, or association supports the diverse UBC departments, faculties, and student groups in creating a strong and vibrant UBCO community.
