UBC ASIA Academic Department Professor Luncheon Event Series

The UBC Asian Studies Interest Association’s Academic Department will be hosting a series of catered Professor Luncheon (ProfLunch) events for students to meet the Asia Department’s lovely professors! Events will be conducted monthly and will feature a different professor each time. If you’ve ever wanted to ask professors about things like their courses, careers and research, then these events will be great for you!
