UBC on CBC radio! (X2)

Posted by: | March 28, 2007 | 10 Comments

I’m always on the lookout for UBC-related news in the mainstream media.

So here’s what we know of the elections:Campaiging March 16-23. Voting takes place at 3 separate polling booths in the SUB and Buchanan Buildings between March 25-30 We’re probably the only place […]

Juxtapose what pops to mind when you think of:1. UBC administration’s main prerogatives.2. UBC’s only broad, encompassing mission statement, trek 2010. For me, it goes something like this for the former, “Martha Piper-endowment-development-endowment-ivory tower-endowment-elite research-endowment-ivy league-endowment”and something like this for the latter: “complete community-global citizenship-sustainability-global citizenship-community outreach-global citizenship-public responsibility-global citizenship-innovation-global citizenship.
