With the congregation ceremonies in full swing, it is an exciting time of year for UBC graduates, their families and fellow UBC colleagues along with the UBC community and other well-wishers.

A few congregation facts include:

@ In 1916, there were 41 graduates at UBC’s first Congregation ceremony held at the Hotel Vancouver

@ From 1919 to 1923, the first degrees were conferred in Agriculture, Applied Science in Nursing, and Forestry

@ Currently, there are 12 UBC faculties issuing degrees: Applied Science, Arts, Commerce and Business Administration, Dentistry, Education, Forestry, Graduate Studies, Land and Food Systems, Law, Medicine, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Science.

So, take a few minutes to celebrate some of UBC’s graduate students’ scholarly research and intellectual output – from across a variety of disciplines – via cIRcle, UBC’s Digital Repository.

Open Access Week @ UBC 2011 will be happening at UBC on October 24-30, 2011!

Open UBC is held in conjunction with International Open Access Week, which encourages the academic community to come together to share and learn about open scholarship initiatives locally and worldwide.

Open UBC showcases a week of diverse events highlighting areas of open scholarship that UBC’s researchers, faculty, students and staff participate in. These events include discussion forums, lectures, seminars, workshops, and symposia on topical and timely issues from every discipline. We invite everyone to participate either by organizing events, highlighting events already coinciding with the Week, or attending the events to be scheduled.

All of these events are FREE and open to the public, students, faculty, staff and schools.

With an open “Call for Participation”, this is your opportunity to get involved and share your scholarly research and/or tools with fellow UBC researchers, faculty, students, staff and the public.
