VIU Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Scholarship, Research, and Creative Activity

Every day, VIU employees and students undertake boundary spanning research and creative activity. They ask thought provoking questions and challenge conventional ideas. They investigate, innovate and create new knowledge and works, that go on to change individuals, disciplines, and practices. They experiment with new models and techniques, forge new ground and innovate. They constantly strive to pursue new knowledge, find solutions to complex problems, and enhance the world we all inhabit.
