Featured Research

Research on Indigenous topics by Indigenous faculty, students and other experts occurs in many places at UBC Vancouver, in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, in education, law, and medicine, in natural resources, engineering, the sciences, and health disciplines.

As further research is undertaken, additional stories and other developments will be added to this section, which in turn will build an increasingly clear picture of the research being done across the University, and of the exciting new direction this is establishing.
