UBC Alumni

One of the best ways to judge a university is by the quality of its alumni. UBC grads are world-renowned opera singers, CEOs of international corporations, award-winning writers, scientists, economists, teachers physicians, lawyers and professionals of all stripes, and make up a large part of BC's workforce.

UBC has been sending graduates into the world since 1915, and while the institution has granted nearly 200,000 degrees, we currently have about 142,000 addressable alumni on record.

Alumni also make up a large part of UBC's workforce. The records show that 1,100 faculty and staff members are grads, but we know there are many more. We want to know who you are so we can send you news about reunions and alumni events, keep you informed with the award-winning alumni magazine, TREK, and get you involved in alumni programs on campus.

Call the Alumni Association offices (604.822.3313), and make sure you are flagged as a UBC grad. Your name will be put in a hat, and you may be the winner of some very classy alumni gear.
