100 Years of Discovery
September 30, 2015 marks 100 years in the life of the University of British Columbia. It is far more than a milestone, a stirring speech or commemorative plaque. It is the story of young students, their hearts filled with hope and promise of a better future; of dedicated professors opening doorways to an unknown subject and creating pathways into a more certain future. It is the story of a bold new Canadian university striving, against the odds, to be the best — in its province, country and finally, the world.
Explore how UBC evolved from 1915–2015, one discovery at a time, to become one of Canada’s leading research universities.
UBC Communications and Marketing would like to thank UBC Archives for their ongoing and generous support throughout the making of 100 Years of Discovery.
