Climate Change and Course Withdrawal
Students should be given the freedom to decide at what point they no longer wish to be situated in a course without penalty. Additionally, we must strive to be an institution that prioritizes the advancement of research into climate change.
- ENSURE the course withdrawal date is permanently extended to later into the year or until the last day of classes
- DEVELOP policies that distribute exclusive research grants for professors, graduate students, or undergraduate students pursuing climate change research
- GRANT values would change depending on professors and graduate students onboarding undergrad students
- GRANT values would also change depending on how the scope of research focuses on the effects of climate change on marginalized communities
- TRANSFORM UBC into an intellectual hub for climate change research and prevention initiatives
- HOLD true to previous recommendations to construct a physical space on campus for all this research to be conducted
