We have a vision of a prosperous, healthy, inclusive and equitable world. Our strategic plan, Transforming Tomorrow, identifies how the faculty, staff and students at UBC Applied Science will take action to achieve this vision by focusing on six priority areas.

The first three areas describe how we are transforming ourselves – taking action to be innovators in our research and teaching, inclusive in our culture, and dedicated to giving our students the skills to thrive in a rapidly changing world.

The last three areas describe how are transforming the world – how as researchers, educators and students, we’re working together to improve the health and well-being of people, communities and the planet.
