Planning Students Association

Our mandate is to promote the well-being of students, assist students in developing professional and personal skills, and to act on behalf of students on issues of concern. We initiate and support various student projects, organize social events, and represent SCARP students in professional planning organizations, UBC's Alma Mater & Graduate Student Societies and decision-making processes like the selection of new faculty.

Representatives are elected for one-year terms, from January to December. Let’s own our time at SCARP! Please feel free to contact us with your ideas.
