Change the world through the Faculty of Arts

Your vision of a more inclusive, compassionate and equitable world is possible. In the face of humanity’s most critical and complex issues, UBC Arts students, researchers, faculty and alumni are asking the hard questions. They’re diving deep for insight, thinking critically, fuelling curiosity and sharing ideas that advance just and thriving societies.

School of Creative Writing graduates hold a mirror up to the world around us and boldly communicate their vision for what could be. They include internationally recognized authors Michelle Good of Five Little Indians, Danny Ramadan of The Foghorn Echoes and Tara McGuire of Holden After and Before – Love Letter for a Son Lost to Overdose.

What happens here can change everything. Your support is the catalyst. Join Creative Writing in shaping a better future.
