On August 21, we welcomed 300 new parents and guardians at the inaugural Parent & Family Network event to learn more about UBC Sauder and engage with fellow parents and families.
UBC Sauder Parent & Family Network is a forum for me to share aspirations and possibilities with other parents. I believe that each parent aspires to see a resilient adult in their child.Mukta Sharma, mother of two UBC Sauder students (4th year and 1st year)
For the past 11 years I have served in leadership roles at two independent schools because I wanted my daughters to receive an excellent education and I also wanted to leave a legacy of excellent education for students who come after them. As a Sauder alum and proud father of a Sauder student, I am excited to take a leadership role in the Parent and Family Network.Colin Yip, BCom ’85 and father of 2nd year UBC Sauder student
The Parent & Family Network is a bridge between our kids and the Sauder School for better communication.Roya Bardshiry, mother of 3rd year UBC Sauder student
It’s vital to network with parents whose children share common goals and concerns.Robin Halpern, mother of 1st year UBC Sauder student
As a Sauder alum, I want to give back to this community and be part of a network that will impact my child and other students directly, by enhancing their experience while at Sauder and helping them to succeed when they graduate.Cynthia Yip, BCom ’89 and mother of 2nd year UBC Sauder student
Welcome from Dean Robert Helsley
This is a rewarding and exciting time for our students, and their families. As the parent, grandparent or guardian of a UBC Sauder student, you too are a vital part of the school’s vibrant and diverse community of support.
Our Parent & Family Network is all about you. We believe an informed, supportive family plays an instrumental role in our students’ educational achievements and I invite you to participate in your student’s experience at UBC Sauder.
Through resources like the UBC Sauder Parent & Family Guidebook, we help families stay connected with the school. And we involve you in a way that will enrich your understanding of UBC Sauder, while empowering your student to take personal responsibility for their social and academic choices.
We continue to seek new ways to embed our values of respect, rigour and responsibility into every aspect of the school. Our hope is that our students will carry these values forward into their professional and civic lives.
We are excited to work together with you to help our students reach their fullest potential and not only go on to succeed in business but also make a positive impact on our society.
