SERVING ALUMNI
BETTER
"We've still got the spirit" say UBC
students and they plan to share it with
grads during Homecoming Week,
October 21 - 27.
At the Alumni Association, you can
feel the UBC spirit in the energy of
this year's $1.2 million alumni fund
campaign (story on page 7) and in the
excitement of the myriad of alumni
activities scheduled during and
around Homecoming. A complete listing starts on page 9.
But the UBC spirit is apparent in
another way, too — in our alumni
merchandising program. In this issue
of the Chronicle, readers will find a
variety of special alumni offerings,
some designed to bring back warm
memories of campus days, others simply reflecting good value or group
prices on popular products and programs.
Our alumni merchandising program
serves two of the Association's most
important objectives: to build a sense
of lifelong affiliation with UBC, and to
enhance financial self-sufficiency for
the Association in a challenging economic environment.
We're grateful to the UBC Bookstore
for working so closely with us in
developing the special alumni catalogue carried in the centre of the magazine. We're also delighted to be
working with Ventra Travel Services
Ltd. on a new travel progam aimed at
the needs and interests of UBC grads
(see page 23).
There are opportunities when graduates can help their alma mater and
help themselves at the same time.
Such an opportunity exists in the
alumni merchandising program and
we invite you to participate.

DAVID STRANGWAY
APPOINTED
UBC PRESIDENT
Dr. David William Strangway, former president of the University of
Toronto and one of Canada's leading
geophysicists, will become UBC's 10th
president on November 1, 1985.
Dr. Strangway will replace Dr. Robert Smith, who has been serving as pro
tern president since the resignation of
George Pedersen on March 7, 1985.
Dr. Smith becomes vice-chancellor of
the University of Western Australia in
January 1986.
David McLean, chairman of UBC's
Board of Governors, said in announcing Dr. Strangway's appointment that
"In Dr. Strangway the Board has
found an exceptional individual
whose distinguished career reflects
extensive experience in the academic,
industrial, government and administrative sectors. The unanimous decision of the Board to appoint Dr.
Strangway reflects its feeling that he
brings a deep sense of commitment to
this position and that he will provide
strong leadership and direction for the
University."
Dr. Strangway said he was looking
forward "with enthusiasm" to becoming UBC's president. "I have always
considered UBC to be an institution
characterized by excellence in all it
does and I'm proud that I will be associated with one of Canada's outstanding universities."
Dr. Strangway was president of the
University of Toronto from September
1983 to September 1984. Before that he
had been vice-president and provost
of that university, from which he also
received all his degrees — Bachelor
and Masters of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy.

GORDON MERRITT SHRUM, 1896-1985
Gordon Merritt Shrum died in his
sleep on June 20, six days after his
89th birthday.
Dr. Shrum, founder and first chancellor of Simon Fraser University and
former chairman of B.C. Hydro, was a
professor and administrator at the
University of British Columbia for 36
years.
He came to UBC in 1925 as an assistant professor of physics, was promoted to associate professor in 1928
and professor in 1937. In 1938 he was
appointed head of the physics department, a position he held until his
retirement from the University in
1961. He was also Dean of Graduate
Studies from 1956 to 1961, Director of
Housing in the 1940s, and director of
University Extension from 1937 to
1941. During his years at UBC, Dr.
Shrum also served as head of the
Canadian Officers Training Corps,
director of the B.C. Research Council
(which he established), and, for a
time, director of Buildings and
Grounds.
But Gordon Shrum's career did not
end when he reached retirement age
in 1961. He was chairman of B.C.
Hydro for 12 years, supervised the
building of Simon Fraser University in
18 months, and, at age 83, oversaw
construction of Robson Square and
the Vancouver Law Courts in downtown Vancouver. He was also
involved with the planning for the
trade and convention centre on the
Vancouver waterfront. Dr. Shrum was
active in the National Research Council of Canada, the Defence Research
Board and Atomic Energy of Canada.
In 1918 he was awarded the Military
Medal for bravery. He served in the
armed forces again during the Second
World War, and was awarded the
Order of the British Empire and the
Order of Canada.
Tribute was paid to Gordon Shrum
at a memorial service sponsored by
UBC and Simon Fraser University on
June 26, 1985.
At the service, UBC President pro
tern Robert Smith said, "His contribution to UBC was enormous. Above all,
he will be remembered on this campus
as an activist academic leader, a decisive no-nonsense administrator, and
as an Expeditor Par Excellence. His
legacy to UBC as an academic is formidable and will remain in perpetuity.
He was indeed one of the great men of
UBC and deserves his affectionate title
as one of the 'Builders of UBC "
Dr. William Saywell, president of
Simon Fraser University, recollected
Dr. Shrum's role in getting that university built in the 1960s. "Gordon
Shrum loved his university with a passion, just as he loved UBC and the
university world with the abiding
faith that this intellectual giant always
maintained. He could not understand
minds less curious than his or those
who would not give to the development of our country's intellectual
capacity the highest possible priority.
"As for SFU, the entire institution is
a living monument to the name of
Gordon Shrum. ..."
B.C. Chief Justice and former UBC
Chancellor Nathan Nemetz concluded
the tributes:
"He has been called a great soldier,
a great physicist, a great educator. He
has been called a man of action who
insisted on excellence. He has been
called a great patriot. But Gordon
Shrum was much more than all the
many tributes can total. Gordon
Shrum was excellence itself. And all of
us who knew him were truly privileged. He has given us a noble heritage. We can proudly say: we knew
Gordon Shrum." ■

 grads and their University.	
Of Mutual
Benefit
By Karen Loder
ONCE   DAN   SPINNER,   the
UBC Alumni Association's new
executive   director,   closes   the
double doors to the outer office,
he relaxes. The view from his
office,   formerly  a  sun porch
that juts over the lawns of Cecil Green Park, is
spectacular.  He admits he has trouble not
drifting away on sunny days.
But drifting is hardly characteristic of
Spinner, who was wooed away from the
United Way of the Lower Mainland, where he
was campaign director of last year's $9.8 million campaign.
He has a strong background in volunteer
association management. His arrival on the
UBC scene was well-timed because alumni
fund campaigns, rapidly gaining in strength,
were ready for a little fine tuning. Most gratifying, says Alumni Fund Director Pat Pinder,
was the recent $334,000 goal for scholarships
and bursaries. This amount, which was
matched by UBC and the Vancouver Foundation to bring the total to $1 million, was
reached just 17 months into a campaign that
was to run for three years.
The target was achieved through alumni
response to direct mail appeals and matching
grants, plus an additional $66,000 that was
earmarked earlier for the project. The interest
on the $1 million will cover the $100,000
needed each year for scholarships and bursaries for UBC students.
"Now we're not restricted as to how we
raise funds every year," says Pinder. "That
gives us the opportunity to help the University with its priorities in fund raising or to
increase our scholarships, depending on the
direction we want to take."
ALUMNI UBC INNOVATIONS FUND
Quick to take action on the opportunity to
do new things, the Alumni Association asked
the President's Office to design a package of
Alumni
Association
Executive Director
Dan Spinner:
"Alumni should
never
underestimate the
significance of
their contribution
TO UBC."
innovative projects that would link the University to the community. Out of 30 proposals,
seven were chosen by the President's Office,
representing seven different faculties. Some
are research projects and some are new teaching programs, while others will provide seed
money for equipment and research. As the
Fund grows, year by year, projects from a
variety of the University's schools and faculties can be added.
In a special mailing this fall, all alumni are
being asked to contribute to this Alumni UBC
Innovations Fund, either as a whole, or to
individual projects, which are explained in the
mailing.
The Alumni Association has traditionally
used a direct mail campaign to raise funds and
this year's mail campaign will be the biggest
ever. The Association also uses network techniques and solicits selectively — often through
faculty-focussed alumni initiatives. The techniques are obviously working, as last year
$626,000 was raised, 38 per cent more than in
1983/84. This year, the Alumni Association has
announced an ambitious goal for its overall
fund raising efforts — $1.2 million — which is
double last year's goal.
"The nice thing about Alumni funds," says
Spinner, "is that they add in dollars that are
not restricted as are university and government dollars. Eventually, in my mind, this
Alumni Association is going to be responsible
for multi-million dollar campaigns. So we are
talking about a significant amount of money
down the road."
PHONATHONS POPULAR
The Commerce Alumni Division initiated
phonathons five years ago and has averaged
$10,000 a year in funds from them over the
past three years. The Alumni Association
assisted with eight division phonathons this
year, receiving $73,202 in pledges, an increase
of more than $20,000 over the previous year.
Commerce has launched a campaign to raise
$250,000 to complete endowment of the operating costs of the Faculty of Commerce and
Business Administration's management
research library. Half a million dollars is
needed, and Commerce hopes to get matching
foundation funds.
The newly formed Medicine Alumni Division recently held its first phonathon, bringing
in $39,200 in pledges.
"Actually, we really touched less than 10
per cent of our alumni and it was a one night
kind of effort — two hours!" stresses the new
division's dynamic faculty rep, Dr. Charles
"Chuck" Slonecker, head of Anatomy.
Although the UBC Medical Alumni had
never been formally organized, the 30th
reunion of the first graduating class appeared
the perfect opportunity to do so. For their first
goal, the Medical Alumni wanted something
tangible. UBC medical students had already
raised $20,000 for a new student centre. The
medical alumni decided to help out.
The medical students as of September will
have raised another $10,000 to make a total of
$30,000. Another, better organized, phonathon is planned for the fall. A major corporate fund drive aimed at drug and surgical

companies is underway. And alumni will be
invited to support the campaign with $1,000
pledges over one year or several. The centre
will make it to the drawing board stage when
$500,000 has been raised.
The Medical Alumni Division's plan excites
Spinner, who says the Association has been
raising money over the past few years for
many different kinds of projects.
"The old idea of fund raising," Spinner says,
"is how do we get to the most people and
twist their arms the furthest. The new idea of
fund raising that's developed in the last few
years is very different from that. It says donors
should be respected, treated with honor. In
the context of that respect what you want to
do is offer the donor the opportunity to be
involved."
MUSIC DEPARTMENT 25TH
ANNIVERSARY	
The celebrations surrounding the UBC
music department's 25th anniversary this year
culminated in a fund raising concert at the
Orpheum in March before an audience of
2,000. The performers included soprano Judith
Forst, BMus'64, concert pianist Robert Silverman, a UBC faculty member, and more than
200 members of the Vancouver Symphony
Orchestra and the music faculty. At the end of
the evening, the department was $10,000
richer.
Previously, the music department had only
staged small fund raising benefit concerts in
the department's 280-seat recital hall. Department head William Benjamin says staging the
Orpheum concert was important because it
gave the department a strong image as a performance school rather than a purely academic
one. Although Benjamin has no desire to be a
full-time fund raiser, he is delighted to have a
mailing list now which gives him a direct pipeline to more than 1,000 music grads.
Through the benefit performance and
approaches to corporations, the music department has raised $44,000 towards establishing a
much needed endowed scholarship fund.
MORE AND MORE SPECIAL EVENTS
A host of special fund raising events have
proven successful over the past year and
many more are planned for the weeks ahead.
One that generated considerable public interest last winter was the February dinner on the
eve of John Valentine Clyne's 83rd birthday.
The former UBC chancellor was the special
guest at the $200-plate dinner, co-sponsored
by the UBC Board of Governors and the
Alumni Association.
Co-chaired by Douglas Gardiner, BA'69,
and Kyle Mitchell, BCom'65, LLB'66, with
John Turner, BA'49, as the Honorary Chairman, the dinner raised $100,000 to provide the
funding base for the J.V. Clyne Lecture Program. The program will bring world leaders in
the fields of business, government, law and
the arts to lecture on campus and in the community. Donations for the lecture series are
still being received.
Margaret Annett, BA'76, reports that her
campaign to raise $500,000 for the endowment
of a chair in Special Education at UBC is gaining community support. After a variety of
activities, the campaign raised over $35,000
last September. Almost 100 volunteers took
part in the Special Ed casino nights in March,
raising $14,000. A very successful Jazz Sunday
was held at the Bayshore Inn in June —
arranged by the Hot Jazz Society. Ten jazz
bands — all volunteers — performed, as did
the cast of the Arts Club's smash hit "Ain't
Misbehavin". The second annual Special Education Week, September 24-30, was
highlighted by a big celebrity car rally on the
29th.
A gala evening will be hosted by the UBC
Health Sciences Centre Hospital for the Brain
Research Program October 4. Leon Bibb will
be master of ceremonies and Ann Mortifee
and Bibb will perform singly and together.
Strolling musicians will create a first-class
atmosphere throughout the evening. The
$250-plate affair will be held in the Great Hall,
Vancouver Law Courts.
The UBC Health Sciences Centre Hospital
Harry Purdy Extended Care Unit will hold its
second annual Chair-a-thon to support transportation, recreation and leisure programs,
October 27, "rain or shine". They are aiming
for 50 wheelchair teams and a target fund
drive of $50,000.
The UBC Law School marks its 40th anniversary this year and plans to celebrate October 18 and 19 at the Law School and the Courthouse. All Law grads are invited to a beer-up
on October 18 at the Law School. On October
19, a cocktail reception will be held at the Vancouver Art Gallery before a $100-plate dinner
in the Great Hall of the Law Courts. Organizers hope that more than 500 people will attend
that dinner, the proceeds of which will be
used to start a Dean's Bursary Fund for students in need.
Since it opened 14 years ago, the Faculty of
Medicine's School of Audiology and Speech
Sciences has received about $1 million in
research funds. The school is now conducting
a capital fund drive to raise $1 million to fund
scholarships and bursaries. The student aid is
necessary because the heavy course-load and
clinical practicums and internships prevent
the Masters and PhD students from working
part-time.
Back in the Cecil Green Park "sun porch",
Dan Spinner expands on his favorite subject,
his philosophy of alumni involvement. He
feels that graduates should never underestimate the significance of their contribution to
the University.
"And it's more than just a financial contribution," he continues. "Just as significant is
the inestimable value of countless volunteer
hours alumni contribute to their alma mater,
whether it be on the University Senate, committees, or any of the hundreds of projects
that alumni help UBC with.
"If you calculated this volunteer work at
average wage rates, UBC alumni involvement
and contributions would total close to $10 million in any given year. Alumni are really
UBC's first circle of support in the community." ■

Joubin:
Explorer at
Large
By Andrew Purvis
IN THE DEPTH of the Depression, the
Pioneer Gold Mine near Lillooet hired
Francis Renault Joubin, BA'36, MA'43,
to stoke their woodburning boilers for
$3.20 a dav. Thirty years later Joubin
returned to Pioneer, bought it, and hired as
his consultant the man who had spooned out
his daily $3.20.
"It was an exercise in sentiment," savs Franc
Joubin, now Canada's foremost exploration
geologist and recipient of this year's AMS
Great Trekker Award for outstanding contributions to the Universitv of British Columbia
and the community. He has given regularly
and generously over the vears, notably to
funds for the construction of the Geological
Sciences Centre.
Joubin's astonishingly successful career,
which includes discoveries in uranium, copper, iron, gold, and gas beneath the Carribean
Sea, have led him from Hudson Bay to the
shores of the Baltic Sea. His life has been
marked by total absorption in his work.
"It has always been my pleasure and my
sport," explains Joubin. "Other men chase golf
balls; I look for rocks. That is what keeps me
ahead of the pack."
14    Chronicle/);// 19S5 The AMS Great Trekker award for 1985 goes to Canada's foremost
 exploration geologist.	
Franc Joubin,
BA'36, MA'43:
INTRIGUED BY
URANIUM WHILE AT
UBC.
Dr. Joubin "at
WORK" IN
Patagonia, Chile.
Joubin's single greatest success, handsomely rewarding his steady devotion to the
prospector's art, was identifying the Blind
River uranium deposits in 1954. It followed a
long haul.
Uranium first intrigued Joubin while he was
still a student at UBC in the 1930s. He and his
roommate, Kenneth Mackenzie, began reading all available literature on uranium. Mackenzie, a physics major and close friend, later
contributed to the building of the TRIUMF
cyclotron at UBC. Mackenzie wanted to investigate uranium's possible uses (at the time it
was touted as a cure-all for cancer); Joubin,
already a confirmed prospector, wanted to
determine how it might be located in the field.
Noting that the element was typically associated with both nickel and cobalt, Joubin
pored over a survey map of Ontario, circled
the region between the nickel mines of Sudbury and the cobalt excavations of Cobalt, and
promised himself to investigate the area at his
first opportunity.
In the early 1940s, the demand for uranium
soared with the advent of the atomic bomb.
Joubin immediately acquired one of the first
portable "Geiger Counters", strung it around
his neck, and carried it with him wherever he
went.
"Like the young you see today, always listening to their earphone music, the music that
I wanted to hear was the buzz from radioactive uranium," he fondly recalls.
In 1950 Joubin closed in on the district
between Cobalt and Sudbury, but, to his vexation, could not raise the $35,000 required to
conduct preliminary tests.
"I went to all the biggest companies," he
says. "That was a mistake, they were imaginatively muscle-bound."
After four years of searching, he
approached Joseph Hirshhorn, "an imaginative, not overly technical man," Joubin says.
"I'll go for your crap game," said Hirshhorn.
With his support and drilling success,
Joubin's company shot from $1 to $135 a share.
Within six years the so-called Blind River uranium deposits had grown to become the largest in the world, securing contracts worth over
one billion dollars.
The then largely military use of much of this
uranium left Joubin sad and bewildered.
"I can't understand the tendency towards
violence in this world," he says.
He has since been active in the peace movement, notably as the co-founder of the Canadian Peace Research Institute in 1962. Moreover, he remains "extremely interested" in the
potential peaceful uses for nuclear energy.
"The radio-isotopes could work wonders for
the human race," he says, still hopeful.
Joubin's success with uranium allowed him
to spend less time consulting and more time
prospecting, his first love.
"I've never really been much of a consultant. My talent is as an explorer, a developer of
concepts."
IN 1962 he took a job, at nominal wage,
with the United Nations. For the next 18
years Joubin travelled to more than 60 countries around the world, searching for oil, gas,
metals, and minerals which could provide the
countries in which they were found with
much needed foreign exchange.
Among his discoveries while with the U.N.
were natural gas in the Caribbean, uranium in
Somalia, potash in Poland, rock phosphate in
central India, and copper on the old Marco
Polo silk trail in Iran. To identify this last find
Joubin recognized ancient slag from a mine
which he guesses was operating more than
500 years ago. He also discovered copper
deposits associated with the Cordillera Range
in Panama, Mexico, and Columbia, deposits
that had largely been buried beneath mountains of younger volcanic rock.
"Franc has been places and done things that
most geologists only dream of," says one geologist friend.
Francis R. Joubin was born in San Francisco
in 1911, and soon after moved north with his
parents to Victoria, B.C. His father hailed from
Brittany, and his mother from Normandy.
"So in me there's the toughness and
ruggedness of a Briton, and perhaps the elegance and brains of a Norman," Joubin says.
Although Joubin was effectively orphaned
at age 7, his father killed at war and his
mother gravely ill, he was in an orphanage
only a few years. By his early teens he was
helping support his mother and younger
brother by doing odd jobs around town such
as newsboy and baker's apprentice.
In 1931 Joubin enrolled at Victoria College
where, he recalls, "I got a good reception,"
notably from a young professor of mathematics named Walter Gage.
"He was such a brilliant teacher that I
appeared a brilliant student."
Later at UBC Joubin majored in Chemistry,
but through summer work at the Pioneer Gold
Mine he was gradually becoming interested in
exploration geology.
"I realized that I'm an outdoors person, a
very physical person," he says. "To me the
confines of a chemistry lab would have been
murder. . . . The fact that during the Depression I was able to secure a year's employment
with the Geological Survey of Canada
enhanced my appreciation of the field."
Geology seems to have been a wise choice.
In the course of his career, Joubin was
awarded two medals and four honorary
degrees. In 1983 he was appointed to the
Order of Canada.
At 74 Joubin is still in search of treasure. His
company, Sogepet, formed in 1962, is drilling
two exploratory oil wells beneath Hudson
Bay. Canada's most seasoned prospector
enthusiastically compares the region's petroleum potential to that of Britain's North Sea.
"I'm convinced we'll find something,"
Joubin says. He's been wrong before, but he's
more often been right. ■

 tough?"	
Sweet Angst
of Youth
By Eric Nicol
NINETEEN THIRTY-SEVEN
(A.D.) was my freshman year at
UBC. The Great Depression
was in full bloom, casting its
noxious spores over the campus. President Roosevelt had rallied the Americans with "The only thing we have to fear is
fear itself," but north of the border we had
more options for anxiety.
My father had just lost his job as accountant
for a Vancouver brokerage firm that had been
caught in flagrante delicto, committing necrophilia on the stock market. At a family conference around the kitchen table, it was decided
that if I could squeeze into UBC on an
I.O.D.E. bursary ($100), my parents would
find a way to feed and clothe me and spare me
the humiliation of looking for work.
To qualify for the bursary, which was
awarded to the children of World War I veterans, I had to take a means test. This was an
oral examination by three officers of the university in a Star Chamber that made me feel
like an insect out of a Kafka novel. Not only
did I have to plead poverty and describe my
family's reduced circumstances, but I was
made keenly aware that the bursary would not
have been available at all had not the Kaiser
dragged Canada into war. I felt like a buzzard
on the make.
Before the inquisition, I had nightmares in
which I stood before the triumvirate of black-
16    Chronicle/Fa//1985
gowned academics, me wearing my father's
old Tommy helmet and holding the souvenir
potato sack he had found in a German trench.
Without being asked, I babbled of the horror
of living with a dad who was terrified by thunderstorms, because the rumble of doom
reminded him of being under artillery fire.
"Grant me this bursary," I cried in my
dreams, "and maybe Pop will feel better about
hiding in the basement."
In the event, the tribunal was less searching
than I'd fantasied. But not much. The judges
did not actually make me turn out my pockets,
but they did stamp upon me, indelibly, that
status of a mendicant. For all my undergraduate years till I took refuge in the RCAF, I slunk
around the campus as though my sweater
bore the Big Block letter B, for Begging.
All freshmen were viewed as a lower form
of life, of course, in those days of the primitive
caste system, and I was one of the Untouchables. I brooded because the Engineers never
tossed me into the library's reflecting pool, not
wanting to pollute the water.
Obtaining a parking sticker was no problem,
since I didn't own a car. Those students
wealthy enough to have private vehicles must
have parked them somewhere, but I have no
recollection of a students' parking lot at UBC
in 1937. I lost track of the cars after they had
passed me as I pedalled my bike along University Boulevard. But the parkade I used was a
small alcove behind the bus stop where I could
stash my one-speed Raleigh without fear of its
being   stolen,   since   it   was   watched   by   a
Eric Nicol in his
student days:
Ubyssey columnist
and "preoccupied
VIRGIN". wooden garage reserved for a couple of very
exalted deans.
I chose Commerce as my discipline, though
I had about as much potential as a businessman as a goat has for flight. Like most other
students of depression eras, then and now, I
was guided bv the stern purpose of making a
living. You could tell which students were
lucky enough to belong to moneyed families:
they were into frivolous subjects like Greek
and Religious Studies. At the end of my first
year I got out of Commerce and into French. 1
had got better marks in French, and I needed
to keep those bursaries coming in order to take
am/thing. If the Rhodes Scholarship had been
awarded for sheer athletic nimbleness in
jumping from course to course, I would have
landed in Oxford just in time for the Battle of
Britain.
Despite the financial bind, I never went so
far as to join any of the socialist clubs rampant
on the campus. I was politically inert, for some
reason, perhaps because I was preoccupied
with still being a virgin. My budget was too
limited to extend to escorting young women to
social functions, and the chances of being
deflowered in the cafeteria were not optimal.
Those politically activist students to whom
virginity was no object camouflaged their
degree of Marxism by joining unlikely clubs.
The young Communists, for example, throve
in the Student Christian Movement. The
apparent contradiction in religious ideology
may have had its effect on these militant
adherents, since several of them went on to
ambiguous careers in the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, as well as media of entertainment.
Lacking club membership, and spurned as
camel dirt by the fraternities, I had no access
to a social centre other than the men's common room. Situated in a corner of the "temporary" Arts Building, the men's common room
was furnished with splintered remnants of the
frequent inter-faculty riots, compared to
which the student revolt of the sixties was a
church picnic.
Indeed, I saw nothing comparable to the
ambiance of the men's common room till as a
post-graduate student in Paris I toured the
venerable Prisoners' Gallery of the Palais de
Justice. The walls of the men's common room
were redolent of the same ghastly terror born
of the Enlightenment.
The sole amenity of the men's common
room, for me, was that I could create a hot
lunch by placing my brown-bag sandwich on
the steam radiator and holding it there till the
cheese melted.
Yes, it was character-building. I hope that
the kids who have prevailed against the century's second major depression will take comfort in that knowledge. After all, where's the
glory of Tuum Est if what's up to you isn't all
that tough?

of these are available at reduced

The Learning Experience Tours
cover a range of experiences
from biking in the Andes, to photography in New
Zealand, to the best viewing of Halley's Comet from
the Southern Hemisphere. Knowledgeable resource
people, such as Canadian photographer Courtney
Milne, will escort specific tours. As well, the Alumni

the Centre for Continuing Education at UBC.
I invite you to read the Winter & Spring Schedule
