Registration is now open for a new season of our SFU Shadbolt Graduate Liberal Studies Big Idea Seminar Series.

Each seminar will consist of two two-hour workshops on a wide range of topics and will be presented by GLS alumni and SAR/GLS PhD students.
These free sessions are offered Wednesday nights from 7pm - 9 pm at the West End Community Centre, Meeting Room 2. Reading material will be discussed during the first session.
