Office of Ainsley Carry
As the UBC Vice-President, Students, I’m excited to be fostering an exceptional student experience for over 70,000 undergraduate and graduate students at UBC, one of the world’s leading research universities.
My office provides institutional leadership in the areas of housing and food services, student health and wellbeing, student affairs, athletics and recreation, and student careers. Through the 5-year Student Strategic Plan, we strive to engage students everyday where they study, live, eat, play, and grow—while continuously working to improve the critical support services that seek to ensure that every student at UBC can succeed in all aspects of their university life.
