Campus update sessions

Campus updates are a regular series of town hall meetings. University leaders brief the campus community on major initiatives, opportunities and matters of institutional interest.

The sessions are also an opportunity for campus leaders to hear from you in an open and respectful environment.

All UVic faculty and staff are invited to attend.
