The UBC Mix Team is happy to help you in your interdisciplinary teaching and learning pursuits!

The UBC Mix initiative was born out of the Terry project, a cross-faculty program designed to educate undergraduate students on pressing global issues like climate change, poverty, conflict and disease. Members of the Terry team, Joanne Fox and Allen Sens, developed the Mix initiative in response to Geoff Costeloe's Terry Talk Wish. Geoff envisioned a more collaborative university, a place where he could connect the knowledge he learned from different courses and apply them to contemporary issues. UBC Mix enables and activates Geoff's wish by facilitating interdisciplinary engagement in UBC classrooms.
