Guiding Principles

Consultation with the university community is underway. The following principles will guide the creation of the digital strategy:

  • Continuation of UBC's technology journey from utility to modernization to strategic transformation
  • Interface with university strategic and operational planning
  • Broad engagement across the UBC community, ensuring user perspective
  • Focus throughout on capabilities and impact, rather than technology per se
  • Input from experts, both external and internal to UBC
  • Leverage on¬†existing governance and community input mechanisms where possible
  • Respect for competing demands on students, faculty, staff, and university leadership
  • Balance of aspiration and pragmatism, but no ingoing constraints on solution space
  • Connection with the external and Chief Information Office (CIO) leadership reviews
