Living Our Values
INSPIRED BY UBC’S STRATEGIC PLAN, WE ARE MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR LOCAL AND GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT
We foster a space for the University community to share knowledge, enhance ideas, and build school spirit. We are committed to supporting our students, faculty, staff, alumni and the university community by living our values with integrity, serving as a benchmark of the world we want to live in.
We believe in Fair Trade and No Sweat Policy. We only work with vendors who believe in fostering ethical work environments.
Local and Canadian Made
Buying local not only supports our local economy, but it helps reduce our carbon footprint by cutting down on transportation.
We strive to bring in products that are made of recyclable and eco-friendly materials.
ENHANCED LEARNING MATERIALS
We strive to provide a wide range of digital, used, and free learning materials. Bookstore profits are returned to UBC to support operations.
We partner with Indigenous artists and business owners, and recognize the unceded Musqueam territory on which our store is located.
EQUITY AND INCLUSION
We promote underrepresented authors and topics through in-store displays that provide education about equity-seeking communities.
FIND YOUR FASHION
If you’re going to wear something UBC, the UBC sweater is THE item. It’s pretty much a rite of passage. It’s comfy, long-lasting and it never goes out style.
