Student Research Day
Showcasing UFV’s undergraduate researchers
On April 8, the UFV community had a chance to pick up interesting tidbits from some of UFV’s best student minds. In one afternoon, more than 90 students participated in a MicroLecture, poster presentation, or both. Topics ranged from invasive knotweed, crime in Abbotsford, and lichens as a measure of air quality, to Vancouver raves, distracted driving, and more.
Engagement in research and events such as this can help students obtain scholarships, awards, and graduate school positions. It also contributes to UFV’s strategic goal of providing “the best undergraduate education in Canada.”
CICS student researcher, Sukhi Brar also presented at the student micro-lectures based on her research collecting the stories of South Asian migrant mill workers. Sukhi’s talk, titled Indo-Canadians in British Columbia: The Sawmill Experience reflected on the stories she had collected over a short period of time and the struggles and triumph each worker experienced.
