Dean’s Statement on the crisis in Ukraine

The Faculty of Education is deeply troubled by Russia’s unjust attacks on Ukraine and the related impact on our community members.

We express solidarity with Ukraine and join the international chorus of leaders calling for an immediate end to violence in the region. We support Ukrainians in Canada and abroad. We stand with all people, including those in Russia who are protesting at significant personal risk, who oppose the unprovoked violence. The Faculty of Education recognizes that many students, faculty and staff are affected by the conflict. Please draw upon resources that the Faculty of Education and UBC have made available to you.
