Development and Alumni Engagement

Development & Alumni Engagement (DAE) champions UBC’s visions and values, and engages alumni and donors in support of the institution. In September 2011, DAE launched the most ambitious fundraising and alumni engagement campaign in Canadian history, start an evolution, which exceeded its goals by raising $1.624B and engaging more than 130,000 individual alumni over the entire campaign.

Today, DAE’s annual goals are to engage 75,000+ individual alumni in the life of the university, and to raise $200+ million to enhance student learning, faculty research, and resource development at UBC. This continuing effort has helped UBC become one of the world’s 40 top universities, enabling staff and faculty to challenge convention, lead discovery and explore new ways of learning towards ideas that can change the world.

Generations of faculty, staff, students, alumni, donors and community supporters have built this outstanding university. With the aligned functions of development and alumni UBC under one portfolio, UBC will continue to benefit from their foresight, cultivate their enthusiasm and maximize their investment in the university’s future.
