Office of Ainsley Carry
Vice-President for Students
As the UBC Vice-President for Students, I’m excited to foster an exceptional student experience for over 60,000 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 engagement, and athletics and recreation. 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.
Connect with Ainsley
This year, I’m holding listening sessions with UBC students on the topics of student health and education affordability. Feel free to connect with me if you’re a UBC student or part of a student group on campus with feedback on these topics.
I believe that building an exceptional student experience is impossible without the input of students. As UBC’s new Vice-President for Students, I look forward to hearing from students on how to improve the student experience on campus.
