Each year the President’s Town Halls bring UBC faculty, staff and students together for an interactive dialogue.
The conversation begins at the Town Halls as Peter Klein, Acting Director and Professor, Graduate School of Journalism (Vancouver), and Christopher Schneider, Associate Professor, Sociology, Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences (Okanagan), join Prof. Toope for a thought-provoking interview.
Then, the UBC community has the opportunity to get concrete answers to any hard-hitting questions they have.
