Change the world through the power of the arts.

Your vision of a healthier, more sustainable world is possible. In the face of humanity’s most critical and complex issues, UBC Arts students, researchers and alumni are asking the hard questions. They’re diving deep and sharing evidence-based ideas and equitable solutions for a better future.

Since our beginnings more than 20 years ago as the School of Journalism, we have been empowering young journalists to investigate the most pressing global issues of our time. Our commitment to outstanding education, research, and teaching wouldn’t be possible without the support of our alumni, friends, and partners. At a time when trust in media has eroded, it’s more important than ever to support independent, high-quality journalism that is essential to a vibrant democracy.

What happens here can change everything. Your support is the catalyst. Join the School of Journalism, Writing, and Media, in advancing healthy lives, a healthy planet and healthy societies.

Support the future of journalism. Give today.
