Sustainable Communities
in Low-Resource Settings

Sat June 3, 2017 – Thu June 8, 2017

Vancouver, Canada & Cranbrook, Canada

The third annual IC-IMPACTS Summer Institute will be a week long program. This year, the program will be held at UBC in Vancouver and in the First Nation community of ?AQ’AM, located near Cranbrook in the southeastern region of British Columbia.

This unique community-based experience seeks to develop participants’ understanding of how applied research programs can address real-world challenges for communities in the areas of infrastructure, water, and health.

Immediately following the Summer Institute, IC-IMPACTS is hosting its Annual Research Conference (June 9 & 10) and Graduate Student Seminar (June 11) at UBC Vancouver campus.  Summer Institute participants will have an opportunity to participate in all three events!

Space is limited!  Only 24 graduate level students will be selected to attend this program. After attending the program, students will receive a certificate of completion from IC-IMPACTS.
