Supporting online non-degree learning opportunities at UBC Vancouver
The Continuous Learning Advancement Fund (CLAF) supports the creation, renewal and expansion of non-degree learning opportunities at UBC Vancouver. Initially launched in 2019 as the Online Learning Advancement Fund (OLAF), CLAF’s renewed focus is on growing UBC Vancouver’s capacity to serve continuous learners in British Columbia, as set out in the University’s strategic plans.
The small CLAF fund accepts proposals for non-credit offerings with preference given to proposals for fully online micro-credential non-credit programs serving continuous learners seeking to change (reskill) or advance (upskill) their careers in high-demand sectors.
The Office of the Provost and VP Academic (VPAO), UBC Vancouver, has committed $400,000 in funding for the 2023/24 CLAF cycle.
