University Relations is the planning and coordinating office for UBC Okanagan’s campus-wide ceremonies and events, communications and marketing, community engagement, and media relations. We work with stakeholders across campus and colleagues at UBC Vancouver to support the administration, faculties and departments in achieving UBC Okanagan’s goals.
The Ceremonies and Events team coordinates the University’s ceremonial, recognition and university-wide special events at the Okanagan campus—including graduation and VIP visits—and oversees traditions and protocol at UBCO.
The Communications and Marketing team elevates UBCO’s profile with external audiences through content-marketing, creative design, digital marketing, social media and web, and manages communications channels that reach the campus community.
Composed of the Media Relations and Community Engagement teams, Public Affairs reaches audiences beyond UBCO through media releases, event advisories and expert QAs, and increases community connections to UBCO through events, collaborations and partnerships.
