Visiting Scholars Program - 2019/2020

We are seeking applications for our “Visiting Scholars Program”. Visiting Scholars are an integral component of two initiatives at Vancouver Island University (VIU):  the MA Degree in Sustainable Leisure Management, and the World Leisure Centre of Excellence. The program is designed to bring local and international leaders to VIU to engage with students, faculty, and the Vancouver Island region to enrich the student experience, to share research and professional experiences, and to explore possibilities for future collaborations.

Scholars who are interested in joining the program for the 2019-20 academic year are encouraged to submit the completed application and a current CV or Resume to by January 31st, 2019. We will make our selections and notify applicants as soon as able and no later then February 15th, 2019.
