2022-23 External Review/Self-Study
The School of Information (iSchool) was one of eighteen academic units at UBC Vancouver to undergo an External Review in the academic year 2022-23. UBC organizes these reviews to promote accountability and transparency, and improve academic excellence.
This document is a collaborative and comprehensive review of our unit’s academic programs, goals and achievements, administrative procedures, and future plans.
Re-envisioning the First Nations Curriculum Concentration
In 2021, the School of Information launched a year-long review of the First Nations Curriculum Concentration (FNCC). Entitled FNCC & Reciprocity, the project was grounded by interviews and sharing circles with FNCC students, FNCC alumni, and UBC-Vancouver faculty and staff who regularly work with FNCC students.
This project took place on the unceded, traditional and ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓ əm (Musqueam) Nation. School of Information students, staff and faculty continue to benefit from the guidance and teachings from members of this community. Funding for this project was generously provided by UBC’s Advancing Educational Renewal Grant Program.
