Re-Envisioning the Future of the Interdisciplinary Studies Graduate Program at UBC

Thursday, November 16, 2017
5:00 – 7:00 pm
Neville Scarfe Building Room 310

At this November event, our UBC President Santa Ono will be speaking about the importance of interdisciplinary research at UBC via video message. Following a short introduction by ISGP PhD student Marcelo Bravo, the new ISGP chair Dr. Barbara Weber, will respond to President Ono’s comments with her own vision and hopes regarding the future of the ISGP.  Also invited is an ISGP alumna, Dr. Angele Beausoleil, who will be speaking about her experience at the ISGP as well as how she successfully translated her degree into a teaching-stream Assistant Professorship position at University of Toronto. Finally, and because building a strong student community is one of the main goals of the ISGP, Aida Hassani will be sharing her ideas about launching an ISGP student club.

We sincerely hope that this event will provide the opportunity for ISGP students to get to know one another, share ideas, ask questions, as well as work together towards the betterment of cutting edge interdisciplinary research, and its recognition at UBC and beyond.
