For 12 years, Celebrate Research has been presented as a week-long showcase of activities and events at UBC’s Point Grey campus, Robson Square, and at our affiliate locations. The Vice President Research & International (VPRI) Office has provided overall promotional and scheduling support in the form of a communications strategy, advertising and sponsorship, and management of a centralized website.
In November of 2012, the Vice President Research & International announced significant changes to this annual event. Going forward, we are encouraging the faculties to continue to present Celebrate Research Week events, but all promotional and administrative support will be independent of the VPRI Office. For departments and units considering an event, they should proceed with timing that works best for them. The VPRI Office will not establish dates for Celebrate Research Week, so the faculties are free to set their own timelines and promote their events as they see fit.
The VPRI Office will be continue to honour its research award recipients with an annual awards reception. For more information about Faculty Awards, please visit: https://research.ubc.ca/research-excellence/awards-honours
