UBC ranks among the top universities worldwide, but what are the factors that have propelled this growth? What is UBC’s story?
The UBC Brand is a big idea about the university that was developed with the UBC community over a two-year period (2007-09). The resulting concept reflects the emotional response people have to the university, that this place is unlike any other: UBC is a place of mind.
UBC’s Brand, a place of mind, was developed over a two-year consultative process (2007-09) that engaged students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and donors. The challenge: to discover what makes UBC unique.
The process wasn’t about creating a new logo. It focused on articulating the big idea about UBC that encapsulates the sense of energy and possibility on our campuses.
Many participants emphasized UBC’s environment of openness that has helped create a dynamic sense of place no other university can claim.
