Become an Expert

The UBC Experts Guide is an information source that gives journalists quick and direct access to UBC’s expertise.

A great way to increase media coverage for your department, school or centre is to ensure faculty members in your unit are registered as Experts in the UBC Experts Guide.

Each year, UBC's Public Affairs Office receives thousands of calls from print, television, and radio journalists in BC, across Canada, and around the world seeking UBC expertise on a wide range of topical issues. The UBC Experts Guide connects journalists with UBC’s expertise.
