Best Practices for Community Engagement Chin, Shareen


The Equity and Inclusion Office (EIO) has partnered with the University of British Columbia (UBC) SEEDS Sustainability Program on a community and wellbeing research project, Best Practices in Community Engagement. The SEEDS project relates to UBC’s Inclusion Action Plan (IAP) which is due for review by June 2019. Through literature reviews from best or similar case scenarios, eight best practice principles for authentic consultation and engagement practices with a focus on historically, persistently, and systemically marginalized groups have been presented. The eight principles have been refined through consultation with the EIO staff and by attending EIO engagement events. The principles are also accompanied by considerations and measurements for application by UBC in future engagement activities. Disclaimer: “UBC SEEDS provides students with the opportunity to share the findings of their studies, as well as their opinions, conclusions and recommendations with the UBC community.
