AMS Response to UBC’s 2020-21 Budget

UBC’s 2020/21 budget emphasized supporting the long term health and wellbeing of all students, faculty, and staff, and incorporated student initiatives, sustainability and climate action, strategic priority initiatives, President’s Academic Excellence Initiative, and contingency funding for the COVID-19 pandemic. These continue to be important areas, and we additionally want to advocate for continued contingency funding for COVID-19, in light of the ever changing nature of the public health situation.

In our response to the budget the AMS has identified five key themes:

  1. Affordability and Alleviating Student Poverty
  2. Access to Online Learning and Hybrid learning
  3. Anti-Racism and Equity
  4. Accessibility, Student Services and Career Development
  5. Addressing the Climate Emergency Implementation.
