Are your services really equally accessible to all students at your institution, or are there hidden, systemic barriers to serving some student populations, despite best intentions?  Join us at SFU’s Surrey campus to explore together how we can best reach, attract, and serve the needs of the full range of students on our campuses.

Call for Proposals

We would love to hear about what you are doing at your institution to reach and serve the needs of diverse student populations – international students, Indigenous students, mature students, the LGBTQ+ population, students with disabilities, students studying at a distance, or others.  Or have you discovered barriers to access that you would like to explore with your colleagues?  We welcome proposals to lead a session of any type – from a formal presentation about a program you are offering, to leading a very preliminary and fledgling discussion about an issue.  We are flexible as to the length and format of the session – just let us know what you are thinking. Please send your proposal, including a session description of approximately 250 words, to Ruth Silverman, by Thursday, November 15.

Registration is now open, and can be accessed by clicking the register tab to your left, at a cost of:

Members $60

Students $30

Non-Members $90

The location will be Room 5100 at the Surrey Campus of Simon Fraser University.

Go here for Directions to SFU Surrey and Parking Information.
Please note that unfortunately SFU’s reciprocal parking agreements with other post-secondary institutions only apply at the Burnaby campus and do not apply at SFU Surrey because SFU does not operate the parking at that campus.

Accommodation is available at the new Civic Hotel, a short walk from SFU Surrey.  Entering the promo code “J0Q” (with a zero) at the Civic Hotel Reservation site or Marriot hotels reservations will lead to a discounted rate of $149 per night (from $174).
