Looking to get involved within the LFS|US, but a bit tight on time commitment? Subcommittees are open to any interested LFS undergraduate students who would like lightly get involved within the LFS|US! You will have the opportunity to take initiative in the direction of our two Subcommittees.

You can apply for a subcommittee in every October.


Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI)

​Aims to foster an inclusive environment within the faculty through educational and advocacy-focused initiatives. As a member of the EDI subcommittee, you will work with a team of passionate individuals that strives to advocate for BIPOC, LGBTQIA2S+ and any other communities that face marginalization. Initiatives place emphasis on both global and local issues occurring today. The EDI Subcommittee’s first project in 2021 was “Understanding the Different Contexts of Food Sovereignty Work,” an online conversation about the interconnections of Food Sovereignty and ways to become involved. 

Chaired by: EDI Subcommittee Coordinators 

Overseen by: VP Engagement 



In the 2021-22 academic year, the EDI Subcommittee launched its second main project: The LFS|US EDI Resource Guide is a community-curated list packed with content ranging from diverse foods to try, to movies and books that feature characters of marginalized identities, to the numerous EDI supports and resources that UBC offers. See below for the guide, and scroll through to explore all of its pages.


Aims to ensure the sustainability of the actions taken by LFS|US, in alignment with the LFS|US Sustainability Recommendation Report and UBC Sustainability goals. As a member of the Sustainability Subcommittee, you will have the opportunity to take initiative and advance the sustainability of our Undergraduate Society and the greater community. Some past projects piloted by small groups within the Subcommittee include the Recycling Expansion and Inclusion Project, the MacMillan Courtyard Project, and the online “Plants Buds” event. 

In the 2021-22 academic year, the 15+ member strong Sustainability Subcommittee launched and continued asynchronous initiatives, such as Sustainability Week and the above Recycling Project, as well as synchronous events, such as the UBC Farm Walk and Talk and Sustainability Service Day.
