Why UBC Sauder?

UBC Sauder’s Vision

“To build a more just, sustainable and prosperous world through innovation and responsible leadership.”

As we prepare our outstanding and diverse students for the world of work, we impart the values of rigor, respect and responsibility from day one. We highlight these values through transformative learning experiences, both inside and outside the classroom, to help students develop a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. Through this, and an innovative focus on emotional intelligence development, we encourage our students to consider the wider impact of their actions and to find proactive ways to empower others on their journeys as responsible leaders.

Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

At UBC Sauder, inclusion is a commitment to creating a welcoming community where those who have been historically, persistently, or systemically marginalized are treated equitably, feel respected, and have a sense of belonging. Inclusion is built by individual and institutional responsibility through continuous engagement with diversity to inspire people, ideas, and actions for a better world.

The Hari B. Varshney Business Career Centre is dedicated to providing career development services, resources, and programming, as well as access to experiential learning and employment opportunities that enable all students to thrive. Our EDI efforts are an ongoing journey and a work in progress and we look forward to working with the business community as we continue on this path.
