The UBC School of Public Policy and Global Affairs (SPPGA) integrates world-class scholarship, teaching, and policy engagement to contribute towards positive change.

Our approach equips researchers and policy leaders with the diverse perspectives, skills, and knowledge needed to contribute towards solutions to complex local and global issues.

As an interdisciplinary hub with particular expertise in Asia Pacific and sustainability policies, we draw on the expertise of UBC institutes, research centres, and faculties, and invite engagement with communities that span the globe.

The School of Public Policy and Global Affairs was founded in 2017 at The University of British Columbia Vancouver campus and is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.
