    University Facts and Statistics: University of British Columbia

    The University of British Columbia (UBC) is home to one of the largest sub-atomic particle accelerators in the world and to Canadaís largest anthropological museum and third biggest university-based library system. UBC is currently undertaking a strategic plan called 'Trek 2010' through which it aims, in collaboration with business, government, other post-secondary institutions, and the professions, to re-organize, re-orient, and re-structure its goals, principles, and strategies in order to found a new base of academic and educational excellence upon which students may be embedded with the knowledge and analytical, research, and social skills required to successfully understand and succeed in an ever-changing, globalized, and technology-based world. In September, 2005, UBC will be opening a new campus in Kelowna, British Columbia to be called 'UBC Okanagan.'
