Come join us in the Scholarly Sharing Initiative!
The Scholarly Sharing Initiative is an informal monthly gathering to share scholarship at UFV. The SSI space is one of relatively informal exchange. Presenters usually speak for 10-15 minutes and some either begin or end with questions for the audience to help foster an atmosphere of discussion. The purpose is to share our work, learn from each other, and promote exchange of ideas and scholarly community. No commitment to attend regularly is expected, though everyone (faculty, staff, students) is always welcome.
University House, Abbotsford Campus
1:15 - 2:45pm
Delicious light refreshments provided
Sponsored by and with the generous support of: UFV Office of Research Services and UFV College of Arts Office
