Overview

As Canada's most community-engaged research university, SFU is committed to fostering a unique interplay between learning, discovery and community outreach.

Rising from that vision, the President's Faculty Lecture Series is a public program aimed at showcasing outstanding SFU faculty and their research, and strengthening relationships between the university and the many communities we serve.

Free and open to all, the annual series kicks off in late September. Join us at one of our community venues for a stimulating hour of "big ideas" in a range of fields and disciplines. And don't be afraid to put your hand up--there'll be an opportunity to ask questions of the researchers at the end of each lecture!
