The UBC Climate Hub is a new university-wide initiative that aims to connect and empower university and community stakeholders to take bold climate action for a just future. The Hub advances UBC’s commitment to sustainability leadership and innovation by bringing together students, staff, faculty, and community partners to mobilize knowledge, facilitate interdisciplinary teaching and research, and provide programs focused around climate solutions.
The Climate Hub Projects Administrator is responsible for the delivery of Climate Hub projects and programs, leading community-building efforts on and off campus, and for supporting overall Climate Hub strategic planning and reporting. The Climate Hub Projects Administrator manages the work of Climate Hub student staff and volunteers working to implement projects and programs within their portfolio, and secures funding for project and program implementation as needed. The Climate Hub Projects Administrator will work at the Centre for Interactive Research in Sustainability (CIRS) at UBC, Vancouver, BC. The position involves some travel throughout the Lower Mainland to facilitate workshops, give presentations and develop partnerships, with possible need to travel to other locations within BC as programs develop.

The work of the Projects Administrator is also monitored by the Climate Hub Advisory Committee, which is chaired by the PICS UBC Program Manager, with membership from management at the University Sustainability Initiative, Campus and Community Planning, the Centre for Community Engaged Learning, and students.
