The Office of Regional and International Community Engagement (ORICE) at the University of British Columbia (UBC) believes in creating spaces to connect, inspire, and cultivate impact-driven communities to build a more sustainable, inclusive, and collaborative world.

ORICE offers experiential education opportunities through both academic courses and co-curricular programs to help make meaningful connections between students and faculty with community organizations around the world. Through these tailored opportunities, students are asked to engage with the values and principles of ethical community-engaged practice to prioritize the goals of our community partners and collaborate on projects together.

Located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people, we are a community of faculty members, practitioners, students, research and support staff, all working together to advance the study and understanding of community engagement.

In 2020, ORICE joined the School of Public Policy and Global Affairs as a Partner of the school. ORICE offices are physically located in Mary Bollert Hall at the UBC Vancouver Point Grey campus.
