Centre for Digital Media Gives Thanks

Nov 30, 2021 By Elyse Economides

It’s been a busy fall at Centre for Digital Media, as we welcomed our largest cohorts to date of Master of Digital Media and Pre-Master of Digital Media students into the programs as we enter our 15th year of operations and prepare to welcome students back onto campus for in-person learning and collaboration in January.

On this Giving Tuesday, we’re grateful that our success can continue to support generations of digital leaders and that we can give back to the community that has been essential to our growth. Our annual Charity Poker Night is coming up on December 15th, and thanks to the generous support of a few early donors, we’ve already surpassed our initial fundraising goal, with all funds going to support Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Join the tournament or donate anytime on our virtual food drive page.

This term, we had several opportunities to collaborate with our industry partners, community connections and program alumni.

Collaboration with UBC Women in Computer Science (WiCS) & Queer Coded
