Our university is a kind of universe. It has such breadth of interests and activities.
Capilano University psychology instructor Leonard George was looking for a way to "share the riches" with the Vancouver community and landed on the idea of hosting free lectures in public libraries.
The Capilano Universe public lecture series was popular from the first event in 2010 and has grown over subsequent years, with the series now organized by psychology instructor Danielle Labossiere.
