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 academic courses, co-curricular programs, and International Service Learning (ISL) opportunities to help bridge the gap 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.
