COVID-19 gratitude shout-out

8 June, 2020

The last few months have been challenging for many of us, as we’ve learned to adapt to new ways of working as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

You may have seen our series recognizing faculty and staff who are adapting to new ways of working as a result of COVID-19. In response to these stories, we’ve received a number of requests inviting us to recognize different teams across UBC.

To ensure everyone gets the recognition they deserve, we’re inviting all faculty and staff to submit a “gratitude shout-out” using the form below. We’ll then share these in the next UBC Today newsletter on June 23.


You can take the opportunity to recognize anyone who works at UBC, such as an individual, team, Faculty or department. Your shout-out can be submitted as a short message, photo, or video. You just need to include the following:

  • Your name, location, and faculty/unit/department
  • The name of the individual or group that you’d like to recognize
  • The reason why you’d like to recognize them

If you have any questions, you can email
