"An Inclusive World: Crossing Boundaries Forum"

Take a break before NAFSA or simply join us for a visit and enjoy a scenic trip to British Columbia’s capital city. Experience Victoria's charm and discover what makes the world look different from here. Join us at the Peter B. Gustavson School of Business for a professional development pre-NAFSA event that we envision as the beginning of a concerted effort to counter the negativism pervading the world at present.  Please come and be part of this journey - we need your voice and value your involvement.

From Brexit to the Trump presidency to the politics in the Middle East, join us for “An Inclusive World: Crossing Boundaries Forum” to be held in Victoria on May 26 and 27, 2017.

Our two-day program includes complimentary lodging (on-campus residence), transportation around Victoria, most meals, campus and city tours and entry into the world renowned Butchart Gardens or take a tour on local zodiac boats to experience the beautiful west coast scenery while whale watching.
