Faculty & Staff events

Each year UBC Recreation hosts multiple events to support faculty and staff at UBC Okanagan.


movement break challenge

The Move UBC Movement Break Challenge is a fun and inclusive way to break up our sedentary time during our days for Faculty and StaffSmall changes can have a big impact when it comes to reducing sedentary behavior and increasing physical activity. This challenge invites you to plan for, implement and engage with movement during your day to increase your faculty, department or unit’s total movement breaks. The best part? It’s free, simple and you’ll have a chance to win great prizes! Let’s get our campus and the communities we impact moving! Congratulations for last year’s winner, Faculty of Management with a total of 2387 reported movement breaks!
