The University of British Columbia (UBC) is a global center for teaching, learning, and research, consistently ranked among the top 20 public universities in the world and recently recognized as North America’s most international university.
Since 1915, the university’s motto, Tuum Est (It is Yours), has been a declaration of its commitment to attracting and supporting those who have the drive to shape a better world. As a result, UBC students, faculty, and staff continue to embrace innovation and challenge the status quo, placing UBC at the forefront of discovery, learning, and engagement. UBC encourages bold thinking, curiosity, and initiative, so its community can realize its greatest potential.
UBC’s safety function is handled by Campus Security, staffed by patrol officers who watch over a campus of more than 1000 acres, including approximately 550 buildings. Under the leadership of Operations Manager Ali Mojdehi, Campus Security provides security services including security patrols, security dispatch, and alarm response, access control, investigations, threat assessment & management, event security, crime prevention initiatives, community outreach, and security technology. The patrol officers play a key role of being UBC representatives to the community by being visible and vigilant. The campus is patrolled 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on foot, bike, and vehicle.
Campus Security embraces the University's values by promoting a safe, secure, caring, and welcoming environment to all the campus community.
The department is a team of knowledgeable security professionals dedicated to serving the campus community. Agency personnel are committed to acting ethically at all times and providing services in a professional and inclusive manner. Their goal is to be a welcoming and caring team who are always ready to assist the community for all its security needs thereby helping to create a safer campus.
IACLEA staff looks forward to working closely with the UBC team to create and manage a valuable conference for all attendees.
