By Anne Russell. It’s like speed dating for knowledge seekers. The University of the Fraser Valley is once again presenting the Faculty MicroLectures, a noon-hour smorgasbord of intellectual stimulation.
Seventeen faculty members from a variety of disciplines will give two-minute lectures on their research findings and implications on Tues, March 10, starting at 11:30 am in the Roadrunner lounge on the Abbotsford campus.
Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Get inspired! Find out what UFV faculty are up to in their research, and pick up interesting tidbits from some of UFV’s best minds.
