Events and outreach

UVic has successfully secured funding from various sources including the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union through the Jean Monnet Programme to offer outreach activities to UVic students, scholars, and the UVic community. With this funding our community of faculty, alumni, visiting scholars and students engage in lectures, workshops, presentations, online courses and other outreach and learning opportunities throughout each year.
