UBC’s 12th president, Professor Stephen Toope and PhD candidate and Trudeau Scholar, Aliette Shenin, engage in a conversation about the student experience at UBC. Fuel your body and mind! In addition to her research in education, Ms. Shenin has immersed herself in research on climate change in Alaska, internally-displaced people in Africa, ecotourism in New Zealand and endangered mountain gorillas and chimpanzees in Uganda.
Join alumni, friends and family for this inspirational start to the day and learn how Professor Toope views UBC students as global citizens and how Ms. Shenin is using her UBC education across the globe.
