About the community of practice:

As part of the longer-term vision for building change capacity and capability across UBC, this year’s CoP will focus on building leadership capacity and capability for leading change. 

For those new to the group, the CoP invites leaders to share stories (success and challenges), harness cross disciplinary expertise, engage with and learn from the approaches of others, and explore emerging trends and innovations in change management.


As always, the community of practice is open to all faculty and staff. We welcome you to share details of this session with others who may be interested.
