Due to COVID-related restrictions, univerisites have had to reconsider how to approach programming at a time when teaching and learning are happening primarily online. That, coupled with the growing international conversation around diversity, led to the creation of a Pan-Canada Lecture Series for 2020–2021.
Anupama Kundoo will be talking about time as the most essential human resource in the context of the built environment.
