VIU Research and Creative Activity Showcase

What is the Research and Creative Activity Showcase? 

One of the goals in VIU’s Strategic Plan: People, Place, Potential is to become a hub for research and expertise in the region. In addition, the Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity Foundation Plan: Transforming Learning Through Knowledge Creation includes a goal to communicate SRCA outputs into the public realm by hosting events and knowledge mobilization activities.

There are so many great SRCA initiatives underway at VIU that can be profiled and celebrated. Whether it is a student research project profiled at CREATE, an employee presentation at the annual symposium or a tour of a Center or Institute, the showcase event will provide opportunities to share and learn from one another about the impactful initiatives taking place at VIU throughout April.

  • Departments/programs/campuses can host and include events in the 2023 showcase calendar of events. Plan your event during April or May and book the location, date, and times. Then complete the Submission Form by March 20th or email the details to We will then profile and promote the events.
  • Students can showcase their projects as part of CREATE 2023: the annual showcase of student work to be held from April 3-6th. Questions about CREATE? Email
