Our goal

To promote the Faculty’s excellence and impact in the delivery of education, research and innovation in advancing health outcomes that result in local and global recognition and support from core audiences, stakeholders and community.

What we do

The Office of Creative & Communications delivers strategic communications and creative programs, along with key initiatives, that align and help achieve the goals in the Faculty’s strategic plan Building the Future. These efforts are focused on building brand and reputation that creates clear external and internal awareness and understanding of the Faculty’s vision and role as a global leader. Similarly, the Faculty’s communication plans and programs are synergistic with the goals set out in the broader UBC strategic plan Shaping UBC’s Next Century.

We use multiple strategies and tactics from storytelling, media releases, video, community engagement, social media and brand journalism to strategically highlight Faculty’s strengths and respond to reputational challenges that may arise.
