This is a new degree that’s being offered at my university, the University of British Columbia.
I invite you to take a good look at the second “highlight”:
Address global problems arising from Asian growth and transformation including challenges of sustainability.
Wow. Holy fuck, UBC. No. If this is the kind of problematic, racist mindset you’re going to put behind your “Master of Public Policy” degree, you need to scrap the whole thing, go sit in a corner, and think really hard about all the wrong decisions you’ve made in your life. You may be there a while, goodness knows you’ve made a lot.
Global problems (especially regarding sustainability) aren’t arising because Asian countries are growing and transforming. Global problems arose because the West established and perpetuates unsustainable standards of living, forcibly pushes their model on other countries and tells them that they matter less if they aren’t at those arbitrary standards, and didn’t even pretend to listen when scientists and other academics came out to tell policy makers that there was a problem.
That’s a highlight of your program?
*Blaming Asian countries for following a standard Western ones established and holds up as ideal in the international community?*
*Framing sustainability challenges as issues that are coming up because Other Countries are becoming more advanced?*
NO. No no no no NO.
Recognise that you are part of the culture that STARTED THE PROBLEM. Own up to your own mistakes. Don’t blame others.
Oh, but wait, I guess if you were able to do those things, you wouldn’t be teaching people how to make public policy, now would you?
I’m currently taking the survey. I am not happy. I want this to be spread as far and as wide as possible. I’ve submitted it here as well as at AngryAsianGirlsUnited.
UBC absolutely needs to be shamed for this.
As a Chinese-Canadian with close friends from Vancouver or attending UBC this is very disappointing. Time after time I hear stories reminding me of the fact that the other side of the coin of Vancouver’s large Asian population is the “yellow peril” attitude of many white Vancouverites. This program seems to follow that line of thinking.
Thanks for sharing, and I’m glad you responded to their survey.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS NEAT THING OKAY?
Just to preface this, I don’t know if anyone else has posted this, so if you have, I’m sorry! I’m posting for anybody with any anxiety, stress, want to cool down from a rough day, or just need background noise to function!
This is a really neat site because you have more than one noise to choose from to listen to. If rain isn’t really your thing, they have crackling fire and breaking waves, and it’s just really relaxing. And you know what’s the coolest part about each noise? You can change the levels. You can slide and switch levels around to have the perfect amount of thunder, or light rain, or crackles in your fire, or foamy sea goodness! Each noise (to my knowledge) has 10 sliders for different sounds within said noise, so you can mix and listen for as long as you need! And if you don’t feel like mixing it yourself, there’s a neat button called “Animate” which allows the noise to evolve and change itself, so it gives it a little flavor.
It even has some that are specifically catering to mental health and sound therapy.
But really, I encourage everyone to at least try it out, it’s just super neat and it calms me down and serves as a nice low noise in the background if I need it for sleep or working on homework.
These sites I find really helpful.
Some reference images like these are useful if you’re unable to find/join a life drawing class. Though I would highly recommend going to one:
Eadweard Muybridge photography is very helpful in understanding the body in movement.
