In the summer of 2007, UBC began the long process of developing a comprehensive framework for Aboriginal programming at the university, the Aboriginal Strategic Plan (ASP). After extensive planning, consultation, and deliberation, that plan was finalized in December 2008 and became university policy in January 2009. It was the first completed portion of Place and Promise, the university’s larger strategic plan. If you would like to know more about the process through which the plan was formed and the people who worked on it, please see the Plan History page.
The Aboriginal Strategic Plan outlines ten major areas of action and provides a framework within which the many initiatives underway across the university can be located and be better integrated. It also defines critical areas in which further work must be done.
