Campus Vision 2050 Engagement Session|Feb 2, 2023

Emeritus are invited to the next engagement session on the Campus Vision 2050. Help guide the planning process for the future of UBC.

Members met in the Spring and Fall of 2022 to learn about and provide feedback to support the CV2050 planning process. Recordings of the Spring event can be found on youtube. In this third engagement session members can learn about the next stages and continue to give their valuable insights on their experience and hopes for UBC in the future.

Join us for a short presentation to learn about CV2050, then participate in the conversation by asking questions and providing your insights on key CV2050 topics.

About Campus Vision 2050

The UBC Vancouver campus, situated on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Musqueam people, is home to a world-class, global university, residential neighbourhoods and a vibrant community in a growing region. In early 2022 UBC Campus and Community Planning is launching Campus Vision 2050 (CV2050), a comprehensive, two-and-a-half-year land use planning process. The CV2050 process will build on the history of this unique place and plan for what comes next for a university campus and a community in changing region and world.  

CV2050 will be developed through comprehensive engagement with Musqueam and the campus community, and informed by policy, principles, best practices, and societal imperatives like housing affordability, reconciliation, climate change, anti-racism, connectivity and community wellbeing. The public process formally launched in January 2022 with a broad conversation with the university community on needs and aspirations, and there will be several points of public engagement during Campus Vision 2050 to enable comprehensive community input.

CV2050 will lead to a long-term vision and ensure the future direction for the campus builds on what makes UBC a special place and enhances the livability, sociability and character of the campus within its unique context. The final vision and plans will support the needs of the university and balance the interests of our campus communities, our Indigenous hosts, the broader region, and the environment.
