Volunteer! As a UBC Science alumnus, you have a lot to offer.
Whether you're in industry, academia, government or business, you have a unique story. By sharing your experiences, either as a volunteer, as a mentor, speaker, or co-op employer, you can provide students with invaluable insight that will help them choose their own path in science.
A short-term investment of your time can be a huge source of inspiration and guidance for students. The earlier we hear from you, the more time we have to find the right option for you--opportunities that focus on women in science, discipline-specific events, or sessions that look at a broad array of careers in science.

Since 2012, the University of British Columbia expanded its use of broad-based admissions – an application process based both on grades and personal experiences – to all applicants of direct-entry undergraduate programs. In 2013, personal profiles are required and read for applications to the faculties (or schools) of Applied Science, Arts, Forestry, Kinesiology, Land and Food Systems, and Science.
Based-Admissions Alumni Readers play a vital role in helping to shape the community of students and future alumni of the University of British Columbia.
For this role we are seeking alumni volunteers who are passionate about UBC, interested to learn more about prospective students and committed to thoroughly reviewing applications with accuracy, consistency and free from bias based on a standardized scoring guide.
Don’t Delay, the deadline to sign up is October 31st, 2013
The UBC Science Mentoring is a 7 month program that provides you with an opportunity to make a real difference in the personal and career development of a senior student in Science. Third and fourth year UBC students are matched with alumni and/or industry mentors in their areas of study with an intent to develop professional relationships, communication and leadership skills.
The UBC Computer Science Tri-mentoring Program offers unique opportunity for UBC alumni in the IT field to mentor Computer Science undergraduate and graduate students, and to connect with other industry and faculty mentors in the program.
UBC depends on a large number of volunteers from the community at large to provide their expertise on specific issues, to sit on a variety of committees and task forces and to generously give their time for alumni related events.
UBC Science and our departments run a variety of outreach programs that welcome alumni, public and industry involvement.
