As students, we ask for an excellent education. We ask to be supported by our university. We did not ask for UBC to become a “university town.” We did not ask for UBC to fight its way up an arbitrary rankings list. We did not ask UBC to become a “Place of Mind.”
But the administration never asks what we want UBC to be.
“Whose Campus?” is a five-part series detailing just how far UBC has strayed from being a university that treats students with the respect we deserve.
