The Jump Start program provides new international students and First Nations students with academic preparation for university life at UBC. ARTs 14’s daily meetings will focus on UBC’s brand tagline: A Place of Mind. We will look at UBC as a location and as an institution, and consider the importance of learning in a place, from a place, and about a place. We will explore concepts such as community, research, learning, and the ways in which they impact each other. A central objective will be to build a community that will support you through your time at UBC and beyond.
