Ideafest reception for donors

Mar. 2, 2015

Over 70 donors joined us for a reception in advance of a flagship Ideafest event ‘Change-makers: Bright minds and big ideas’. The university hosted the reception to thank our donors, and acknowledge their part in strengthening UVic’s ability to attract and retain students and faculty with ‘bright minds and big ideas’. The panel discussion that followed featured four of UVic’s 38 internationally recognized Canada Research Chairs: John Borrows (Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law); Reuven Gordon (Canada Research Chair in Nanoplasmonics); Roberta Hamme (Canada Research Chair in Ocean Carbon Dynamics) and Kim Venn (Canada Research Chair in Observational Astrophysics).
