Managing at UBCO
This nine-month program has been designed to challenge leaders at all levels to be their very best. Based on a leadership model that starts with the idea that the act of managing requires an understanding of both management and leadership and a dual focus on tasks and people, this program includes assessments, coaching, workshops and peer learning triads.
To qualify to join the next cohort, as an M&P or Librarian you must have staff supervisory and budgetary responsibility, and have the full support of your AVP or Director, as they will be working with you on an action-learning project consistent with your learning goals.
For more information on the program, please contact Lisa Frost at 250-807-9021

Wellness Learning Sessions
The Department of Human Resources is pleased to offer free wellness learning sessions. These are 1 hour wellness sessions aimed at providing participants with general knowledge about personal health and well-being strategies and directing them to additional resources available.
All sessions are provided by Shepell, our Employee Family and Assistance Program (EFAP) provider, and are available to all employees at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Each session is designed to provide participants with normalization and support by the use of case discussions in order to maximize the impact of the wellness session.
If your department is interested in hosting a free learning session please view the Employee Learning Session Catalogue, fill out the Healthy UBC Program Request Form, and return it to Carleigh Benoit, WRAP Manager, ADM002A
