One Day University in Vancouver sponsored by The Globe and Mail
Since 2006, One Day University has produced hundreds of fascinating events featuring some of the best professors in the world. On November 18, 2018, we are presenting a remarkable day of learning for the very first time in Vancouver. The professors teaching that day have won numerous teaching awards and the highest ratings from their students on campus. Now they're coming to Vancouver to educate, inspire, and entertain students who may no longer be in college, but believe learning is a lifelong pursuit. You'll enjoy three thought-provoking lectures that will challenge you, make you think, and give you fodder for conversation long after the event is over. Best of all, there are no grades, no tests, and no homework. Just the pure joy of learning!
