UBC Library and the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre (IKBLC) have launched the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Scholars-in-Residence Program. This year’s EDI Scholars-in-Residence are Bri Watson, C.E. Gatchalian, and Nneka Allen.

The EDI Scholars-in-Residence program is open to scholars who hold degrees in any discipline. Residency will take place over two academic terms, and includes full access to the scholarly resources of UBC Library, space in the Peña Room and an honorarium. Scholars will offer a minimum of one public lecture during their time on campus, and will be available for one-on-one consultations with UBC faculty, staff, and students.

Public lectures presented through the EDI Scholar-in-Residence program will take place in the Antonio and Marissa Peña Learning and Events Room in IKBLC, with support from the Peña Fund.

Please visit the UBC Library website to read the full story and to register for the upcoming public lectures this fall.

Through Strategy 4: Inclusive Excellence, UBC is committed to cultivating a diverse community that creates and sustains equitable and inclusive campuses.
