We need you. Yes, you!
Applied Science alumni like you help to nurture a thriving community of high-achievers, leaders and changemakers for which UBC Applied Science is known. Being active in your alumni community increases the breadth and depth of our collective expertise, opportunities and impact.
Beyond your genuine desire to be of service to your peers, your involvement is an investment in raising the value of a UBC Applied Science degree – for you and for all APSC alumni. Because when one succeeds, we all do. That’s what it means to be part of your alumni community.
If you’ve got time and talent to spare, just a few hours a month can make all the difference to a student or fellow alumni. However big or small a commitment you’re able to make, you can spark new connections, strengthen bonds and open new doors of opportunity by volunteering today.
