UBC Vancouver is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm people (Musqueam; which means 'People of the River Grass'). UBC Okanagan is situated on traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Syilx Okanagan Nation. The land has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam and Syilx peoples, who for millennia have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next.


We are committed to creating a community where human rights are respected and equity is embedded in all areas of academic, work and campus life. The principles of equity, diversity, inclusion and Indigeneity are fundamental in achieving our mission to shape the leaders and professions that shape the world.
