VIU’s Scholarship, Research and Creative Activity Office is sponsoring a one-day Research and Creative Activity Symposium on Friday April 16, 2021. VIU Faculty and Staff from across the institution are invited to participate in this event in order to present and discuss the work they are involved in, but rarely have opportunity to share with each other, and the broader community. This symposium is not blind peer-reviewed, but is an opportunity to discuss ongoing research and creative activity in a supportive and moderated academic environment. 

A total of 18 presentors will be scheduled via Zoom from 9am to 3pm. Join Us!
