UBC's Dimensions Pilot

UBC is one of 17 Canadian post-secondary institutions participating in a pilot project of the federal Dimensions program, which seeks to identify and eliminate systemic obstacles and inequities for marginalized and under-represented people in research.

In Partnership with

UBC's Equity & Inclusion Office

During the pilot period, UBC had the opportunity to assess how its institutional policies, practices, programs, and initiatives affect equity, diversity and inclusion in its research community. The self-assessment team then developed an action plan to address gaps in, and barriers and obstacles to EDI within the UBC research ecosystem identified through the self-assessment.

The self-assessment and action plan formed the foundation of an application for recognition from the federal Dimensions program that was submitted in October 2022. Program results are anticipated to be released in early 2023. Thank you to those who contributed their valuable insight and time to inform the self-assessment and action planning throughout the Dimensions pilot period.

We look forward to sharing UBC’s Dimensions Action Plan with the university community in spring 2023.
