Welcome to the start of a new term

Message from Dr. Catherine Rawn, Associate Head, Undergraduate Affairs.

I’m thrilled to welcome our new and returning students to the start of the 2022/23 academic year. Know that the psychology department is here to support you.

To help you navigate your student journey, the department has developed a Student Guide on Canvas. This guide is designed to introduce you to all that psychology has to offer and more. Explore all of the student resources and services available to you as a UBC student. This includes our programs, a degree navigator, how to get involved in research, academic advising, ways to connect with other students, and much more.

On September 6, I invite you to join me at our Ask Me Anything on Reddit. A diverse team of people from the psychology community—including faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students—will be on hand to welcome our students and respond to your questions in real time.

Our student clubs, UBC’s Psychology Students’ Association and Psi Chi, are hosting side-by-by side booths at the Main Event on September 6. Stop by to meet our student representatives and learn more about their upcoming events and how to get involved.

I encourage you to make your wellbeing a priority throughout your studies and take the time to get to know your psychology peers. You are part of a thriving and compassionate community and we want your undergraduate experience to be a meaningful and successful one.

I wish you all the very best.
