The President’s Leadership Lecture Series was established in 2011 with the intent to bring to UFV inspirational leaders to share their ideas with us, challenge us, and perhaps even provoke us.
In keeping with UFV's mission, vision, and values, these lectures focus on issues relevant to social, cultural, economic, and environmentally responsible development in the Fraser Valley. The events are free and members of the public are encouraged to attend.
Join us for these unique opportunities to build awareness, dialogue, and engagement on topics of interest to us all.
