About

The UVic Speakers Bureau is a community service provided by volunteer speakers from among the faculty, staff, graduate students and retirees who teach, conduct research, study and work at the University of Victoria.

Through the bureau, experts and knowledgeable individuals from UVic make themselves available to speak to community groups, schools, clubs and other organizations throughout Greater Victoria and southern Vancouver Island. The service is free (although travel expenses may be requested to some locations).

  • ocean science and technology;
  • environment, climate and energy;
  • Indigenous research;
  • global studies and social justice;
  • health and life sciences;

These and many other fascinating areas of expertise are represented among the topics offered this year by Speakers Bureau members.
