Today’s Assignment

Change the World

UBC takes this assignment seriously. As a leading research university, helping to create new thinking in the world is more than just doing coursework — it is a commitment to finding global solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

And it requires us to challenge convention. Ask Why? Pioneer. Explore. Create. Discover.

Because our world is in need of urgent answers.

Answers that will allow us to breathe easier, live longer, heal from disease, mentor potential and spark new knowledge that will improve lives, not only in our community, but around the planet.

We work hard at making a difference. Discover some of the assignments we’ve taken on and the people behind the innovation that is improving, inspiring and changing the lives of British Columbians, Canadians, and the world.
