In June 2013, UBC’s Okanagan campus began planning for a consultative visioning process. In September 2013, Aspire was launched. The consultation included three phases:
PHASE ONE – Initial engagement
PHASE TWO – Exploration of emerging themes and external outreach
PHASE THREE – Development of guiding principles
The Aspire consultation process began in October 2013 and culminated with release of the Aspire report in August 2014. The report delivers a compelling vision for the future that will inform several other strategic planning initiatives for the Okanagan campus. These include updating the Strategic Research Plan, the Campus Master Plan, and the Academic Plan—each of which will have its own consultation process.
