How we contribute as members of the UBC community has an enormous impact on everyone’s environmental and social health. Our campus is situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people, which has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam community. As guests we continue this tradition of learning, including reflection on the way we impact the land through our behaviour.
