Open to the general public and centrally located at UBC Robson Square, UBC Continuing Studies Life and Career Programs (LCP) is a place where adults can build practical life and career planning skills, cultivate self-awareness, and access a wide variety of resources to support their personal and career development.
LCP serves as a vital link between UBC and the community. Their mission is to promote lifelong learning to women and men in an accessible environment, to anticipate economic, societal and cultural trends, and to develop services and programs that will empower individuals.
Programs and services include career assessments, career and personal development courses and programs, as well as advanced skills development through certificate programs in the helping professions. LCP also customizes programs on related topics for groups and organizations.
LCP has evolved from the core programs and services of the internationally recognized UBC Women's Resources Centre and builds on a tradition of more than 40 years of community outreach employing the strengths and skills of a talented and committed group of volunteer associates who provide free drop-in peer counselling.
