UBC Mechanical Engineering believes violence is not an answer for conflict, and we lend our support and compassion to those who are affected by current world conflicts. As world conflicts deepen and innocent civilians are caught in the tragic repercussions in Israel, Gaza and elsewhere, the implications are distressing for those with families and friends affected. The Department joins the University and the individuals, organizations and nations here in Canada and around the world in calling for dialogue towards peaceful resolution.
Students seeking support should reach out to UBC Mechanical Engineering Student Services (for referrals or academic concession support), the Applied Science Counsellor in Residence, or community supports (costs for which can often be supported by your student extended health plan).
