2020/21 Teaching Excellence and Innovation Awards
Every year, UBC Okanagan celebrates the outstanding and innovative teaching taking place on our campus. We recognize the dedication and passion of faculty members who strive to inspire our diverse student body and prepare them for remarkable futures.
I am deeply grateful for how our faculty quickly adapted over the past year as we navigated new, virtual learning spaces and continued to deliver the high-quality education we are proud to offer as one of the world’s top-ranked universities.
