Who We Are
The Undergraduate Business Council is a group of 101 students that serve as representatives for the entire McCombs School of Business, and our 2500+ alumni span the entire world and encompass all walks of life. We serve as the Official Legislative Body and the Umbrella Organization for McCombs and work hand-in-hand with the deans, faculty, McCombs students, and the community around us. We have 50+ programs and events that we host annually for 4700+ McCombs students that vary from hosting C-Suite executive speakers to Company Field Trips across the nation.
What We’re Fundraising For
We’re raising money for mental health initiatives. This is a significant issue that a lot of students face, especially in McCombs, balancing mental health with the ever-increasing demands of school and recruiting. Although there are mental health resources on campus in the form of school-run initiatives, students feel disconnected from these resources as they are hard to navigate and not personable. As representatives of the McCombs student body, we have historically put on events that help students grow academically and professionally, but due to the pressing nature of this unanswered issue, we want to expand our reach to include student well-being resources as well.
Your gift will be used to ramp up mental health resource awareness and increase the number of student-professor interactions outside of the classroom. We are uniquely positioned to address these issues and would like to increase our efforts with your support. Specifically, your donation will be used to help increase the scale of UBC’s impact during McCombs Wellness Week, among many other things. During Wellness Week, programs are scheduled around campus and in McCombs to promote optimism, positivity, and self-care as well as inform students about the variety of resources available for them on campus. We also plan to hold other mental health events throughout the year to provide continual support to McCombs students.
