About the team

Hi there - we’re the UBC Internal Communications team. We’re here to help faculty and staff stay informed with what’s happening at UBC. 

Our team is responsible for managing university-wide internal communications for faculty and staff. This includes sharing university news, announcements, and stories about the people in our community through the award-winning UBC Today website and weekly update. We also help to share updates from leadership via UBC Broadcast and UBC Bulletin. Our goal is to ensure that communications to faculty and staff are clear, timely and relevant. We also advise our colleagues across the university on broader strategies for engaging UBC’s internal community. Find out more about us.

We sit under the Vice-President, External Relations, within the Communications portfolio, which also includes the Media Relations and Brand and Marketing teams.

If you have something relevant and timely to communicate to faculty or staff, you are invited to submit it to the UBC Today website, or email the team at internal.communications@ubc.ca. We’re here to help ensure your messages reach the right people, at the right time, in the right way.
