UBC Okanagan Welcome Back Day

Annual Staff & Faculty Welcome Back Town Hall, Info Fair & BBQ

Each year, the Deputy Vice Chancellor’s Office and Human Resources welcomes UBC Okanagan Staff and Faculty to the new academic year by hosting the Annual Staff & Faculty Welcome Back Info Fair, BBQ, DVC Town Hall and Staff Awards of Excellence.

Held the week before the classes start in September and produced by the HR department along with Ceremonies and Events, the day is a wonderful opportunity to attend the annual Deputy Vice Chancellor’s Town Hall, enjoy a complimentary lunch, live entertainment, information booths, and the camaraderie of your fellow UBC Okanagan colleagues.

The theme this year is all things ‘Varsity’-Blue & Gold of UBC, Heat team members, and a throwback to the 1950’s campus life! Everyone attending the event will receive a bag to gather their swag and information from each of the booths they visit.
