Case Studies were designed as an interactive and collaborative component to connect senior-level students and alumni with important and current UBC and/or community initiatives. Case Studies emerged for the first time at the SLC 2011 and focused on providing perspective to the nine commitments of UBC’s Strategic Plan: Place and Promise. After a strong response from alumni, participants and UBC stakeholders for the past two years, we are excited to move forward with Case Studies at the SLC 2014.
This year, you will have a chance to interact with one of the unique and emerging initiatives at UBC by providing feedback in the form of a presentation. It is our hope that these Case Studies will also provide you with the opportunity to play an active role in the success and implementation of the selected UBC and/or community initiatives.
The SLC Case Studies will span Concurrent Session 1 and Concurrent Session 2 of the conference itinerary. In the Concurrent Session 1, students and alumni will be divided into groups and presented with a case study to be developed through the remainder of this session. In the Concurrent Session 2, these groups will present their feedback and participate in an interactive dialogue with UBC faculty, staff and administration.
You will be presented with one of the case studies in Concurrent Session 1. A primary goal of the Case Studies is to engage and identify with new and emerging UBC initiatives. In this sense, you will have the opportunity to be part of a bigger story on campus by exploring and proposing solutions to address unmet needs in our communities, call out for change, and create new standards.
It is recommended that participants meet the following criteria:
- At least one year of past SLC attendance
- Senior-level student, graduate student or alumni
