Faculty of Arts Description: This is a three-part project intended to explore and enhance the experiences of new racialized faculty at UBC. The first stage of the project will involve conducting research on the needs, experiences, and challenges of racialized faculty in their first years at UBC. Although there are various resources and programs dedicated to faculty orientation, both centrally and Faculty-based, UBC has not yet examined how, if at all, the needs and experiences of racialized faculty differ and how such unique needs and experiences can be best supported.
As a collaborative project, we will draw from multiple perspectives and mandates to pursue a shared objective: The project follows from the understanding that successful recruitment of diverse faculty requires their retention and that the deep engagement of diverse faculty has a profound and positive impact on all members of the University community.
Empowering Indigenous Voices Recipients: The ethos of maintaining a safe, productive space for Indigenous and non-Indigenous studies will remain, but the Collective will not manifest with a multimedia presence.

Develop a template for a workshop on intercultural fluency in graduate supervision based on the data, research and insights gained through the focus group discussions and the symposium. Develop a set of recommendations regarding graduate supervision excellence in the context of intercultural fluency and present to key stakeholders and Vice-Presidents Students, Research, Academic, and Human Resources.
Visualizing the Lived Experiences of Disability Recipients: Faculty of Medicine Description: The purpose of this project is to extend opportunities to learn directly from people living with a disability by producing and learning modules that illustrate multiple perspectives on three commonly experienced problems: Learning materials will be co-developed by students and people with disabilities who are volunteer mentors in the UBC Interprofessional Health Mentors program and used to enhance existing and new curricula.
