WHAT    1$    A    GOOD    CITIZEN?
Fifty years ago good citizens were those who worshipped regularly, kept
their yards tidy and occasionally donated to charity. There was no
demand for individuals to take responsibility for the society in which they
were living - employers, and later governments, took care of social
needs.
Being a good citizen in the 21st century means more than being a good
neighbour. It means having a global conscience and seeing community as
the world in which we live, rather than the neighbourhood in which we
are housed.
Governments can no longer bear the entire responsibility for weaving and
mending our social fabric. The exponential growth of the volunteer sector
in North America indicates that individuals and organizations have
recognized the need for action and are taking over that role as volunteers
and community leaders.
The role of universities in this new era is to prepare tomorrow's citizens
with the knowledge, experience and global perspective to build and
maintain healthy communities. At UBC we are serious about preparing
future citizens to live in a constantly changing society. Education is not
just about acquiring a degree to start a career, but about gaining and using
knowledge to participate in society. To fulfill our role, we are extending
our reach and our presence to the world beyond our gates - the world that
is "out there."
Searching for answers, building communities, leading debate, finding
solutions and redefining the role of a good citizen: these are the
challenges of the new era, in the world out there.

YEAR    IN    REVIEW
Review
UBC received the number two Maclean's ranking for
medical/doctoral universities in the magazine's 2000 annual
survey, an improvement over 1999 when it shared the spot with
Queen's University.
Overall research funding to the University of British Columbia
increased by nearly 20 per cent over the previous fiscal year, with
university researchers attracting $200 million in the fiscal year
ending March 31,2001.
The federal government awarded UBC 38 Canada Research
Chairs in 2000/2001. The Canada Research Chairs Program
provides funding to retain and attract researchers for five- and
seven-year renewable terms, enabling Canadian universities to
achieve the highest levels of research excellence and become
world-class research centres in the global knowledge-based
economy.
The Provincial Medical Education Plan (PMEP) was developed,
calling for partnerships with other B.C. universities to increase
education opportunities throughout the province for students in
the UBC Faculty of Medicine (B.C.s medical school). The plan
seeks to address a demographically driven doctor shortage in
rural and northern areas of the province.
Renovations are nearly complete on UBC at Robson Square, the
university's new campus in downtown Vancouver. The 66,000
sq. ft. facility will house classroom, meeting room, theatre, office
and computer lab space for more than 40,000 students each year.
Along with gaining access to UBC's lifelong learning and
professional development programs, the community will also have
access to services from the university's library, Women's
Resource Centre, bookstore and much more. UBC at Robson
Square will also engage the community with public lectures, fine
arts and cultural presentations and a window to leading edge
research.

Any parent will tell you the most common
question asked by a two-year-old is "why?" It's
human nature to want to know how things work
and why. UBC's faculty members are international
leaders in this search for answers - whether it's a
quest for a new medical therapy or an
archaeological dig to learn how our ancestors
lived.

UBC supports and benefits from a broad range of
involvement with the community, from the local to
international level. Last year, our faculty, staff and
students developed and delivered more than 100
community-based research or service projects. The
community gives our students the experience and
practical knowledge they need to understand their
education. Our faculty, staff and students provide
expertise and enthusiasm to deliver much-needed
services and research for the community. It's a two-
sided process that builds resources, with benefits
for everyone.

As a source of research and ideas about current
issues, universities also have the responsibility to
drive solutions. UBC is proud of its faculty's track
record in developing programs and strategies to
address some of Canada's - and the world's -
most pressing concerns. We're also proud of the
partnerships we've forged with industry,
government and donors, that allow us to continue
that work. Whether it's a way to make our lifestyle
choices more sustainable, or a medical
breakthrough that helps people stay healthier, we
are finding solutions that make the future brighter
for everyone.

PERFORMANCE   INDICATORS
UBC's vision is boldly stated in Trek 2000, which sets a strategic direction for the 21st century: The
University of British Columbia, aspiring to be Canada's best university, will provide students with an
outstanding and distinctive education, and conduct leading research to serve the people of British
Columbia, Canada, and the world.
This vision focuses on five key pillars: people, research, learning, internationalization and community,
and the university measures its performance in relation to goals and targets in each of these areas.
Below are a few indicators of our progress over the past year:
PEOPLE

last year in full-time and part-time programs.
" 80 new full-time tenure-track faculty were
appointed.
* The Faculty of Medicine increased its intake of
students by seven per cent.
* Overall scholarship support increased by $9.6
million.
" As British Columbia's second largest employer,
UBC employed nearly 9,200 full-time staff and
faculty, channeling more than $1 billion into the
B.C. economy.

nationally in Canada Foundation for Innovation
(CFI) funding,
with $68 million.
* 38 Canada Research Chairs were awarded and
appointed.
* The Clean Energy Research Centre was
established.

Royal Society of Canada than any other
university last year.
' UBC generated 13 new spin-off companies and
filed 183 patents on new technologies. These
join the other 91 companies that have been
established thanks to UBC research, and 328
technologies already licensed.
■ Four faculty members were awarded prestigious
Guggenheim Fellowships.
LEARNING
Co-op program placements increased by 26 per
cent overall.
Web capability on campus increased; 1,760
connections were added to the campus network.
Nearly every new course offered by Continuing
Studies was made available via the Internet.
WebCT, an on-line web-based learning
application developed at UBC, was used by
over 1,500 colleges and universities in 57
countries.
UBC conferred 8,078 degrees last year.
INTERNATIONALIZATION
344 UBC students took part in international
exchanges, a 15 per cent increase over 1999-
2000.
Nearly 2,300 international students pursued
undergraduate and graduate studies at UBC.
UBC and Korea University agreed to build a
residence and cultural centre on campus to
establish a joint academic program.
UBC Commerce became the first major
Canadian business school to offer an MBA
program in China.
