Action Plan

Welcome to the strategic plan for Faculty of Land and Food Systems, called our Action Plan. This is our guide over the next five years, leading with a bold vision – balancing our food system and planetary health to create a better world. This vision inspires us to do better. To achieve our vision, our collective focus will be on five Priority Areas. These are areas of strength within the Faculty and where exciting innovations will take place. To manage our activities and programs, the Pillars in our Action Plan will help us mark milestones, and they align with university’s strategic plan, Shaping UBC’s Next Century.
