Profs-in-Commons: Reaching out to Professors

Profs-in-Commons Virtual Coffee Chat: Reaching out to Professors 

Have you ever wanted to ask your prof a personal question, or have had something to share about a life circumstance that affected your learning- from having a doctor’s appointment, to handling a complex personal issue? We know these conversations can be difficult, and we’re here to help! In this session, meet with Dr. Robyn Pitman from the Department of Sociology to talk about when, and why, you should disclose something in your life to a professor in order to get the support you need.


This session will take place over BB Collaborate Ultra. We will email you the attendance link a few days prior to the session.


Would you like to submit questions for in advance of the session? Please email clc.assistants@ubc.ca with the subject line: Profs-in-Commons Question
