Strategic Plan

The VPFO Strategic Plan 2022-2025 integrates with the UBC Strategic Plan and anticipates how UBC and its world will change and adapt well in advance, rather than having change thrust upon us. By taking a long-term perspective, the VPFO can look beyond our current capabilities to make decisions based on progress we expect to make over the life of the strategic plan.

Our plan and our people

The VPFO is made up of diverse, excellent individuals doing important work to support the university. Regardless of our roles in the VPFO, our work is directly aligned with the strategic priorities laid out in our Strategic Plan.

Through spotlighting champions of our strategic plan, we bring our strategy to life and tell the story of how VPFO teams drives the university forward through our new strategic directions.
