What does true engagement mean for a university?
SFU is defined by the dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research and far-reaching community engagement. There's a lot happening at all three of our campuses and we're excited to partner with the Tyee to show you what we mean when we say we're Canada's Engaged University.
From May through August 2016, The Tyee will host a series of SFU-produced videos that tell the stories of innovators and collaborations within and around its community.
First up: Visiting linguist and scholar Anvita Abbi pairs with elder Lawrence Bell to teach a unique course on the Haida language.
This series is part of a Tyee Presents promotional partnership. Tyee Presents is the special section within The Tyee where we highlight contests, events, and other initiatives that are either put on by The Tyee or by our select partners.
We choose our partners carefully and consciously, to fit with The Tyee’s reputation as B.C.’s leading home for news, culture, and solutions. To learn more about Tyee Presents services, click here.
