Our Community Partners

The College's interdisciplinary vision is strengthened through collaborations—both at UBC and in the great Vancouver community.

Whether organizing a major public lecture with The Vancouver Institute, hosting global scholars and influencers with The Liu Institute, collaborating with Early Music Vancouver for intimate performances on our heritage grounds, or producing top notch hospitality with the Green College Dining Society, we are grateful for our community partners.

The Liu Institute

The Liu Institute for Global Issues conducts and facilitates research on global issues with an interdisciplinary approach to explore new ideas and solutions. The Institute strives to turn innovative thought into action and policy to advance sustainability, security, and social justice.

Founded in 1998 by Professor Ivan Head and opened in 2000, the Institute provides opportunities for UBC graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty, and community members to collaborate.

Green College's major partnership with the Liu Institute is the Liu Institute Visiting Scholars program, where a globally influential activist, artist, leader, practitioner, or scholar lives in residence and contributes to the College's interdisciplinary mission.
