CAUBO 2018 marks the 75th year members of the higher education community come together to share best practices, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than to celebrate in one of British Columbia’s hub cities: Vancouver, hosted by Simon Fraser University.
Named for an early explorer, Simon Fraser University (SFU) was founded on the west coast in 1965 as a different kind of university—one that would bring an interdisciplinary approach to learning, embrace bold initiatives and engage with communities near and far.
Today, SFU is ranked as Canada’s leading comprehensive university, with a global reputation for academic, research and teaching excellence. With campuses in B.C.’s three largest cities—Vancouver, Burnaby and Surrey—the university has eight faculties and delivers almost 150 programs to over 35,000 students. More than 130,000 alumni live in 135 countries around the world.
SFU’s vision is to be Canada’s leading engaged university, defined by a dynamic integration of innovative education, cutting-edge research, and far-reaching community engagement.
