Established in 1916 to serve as a liaison between “town and gown” in providing lectures of general public interest, the Vancouver Institute lectures are in Lecture Hall No. 2 in the Woodward Instructional Resources Centre, at UBC. All lectures are free to the public and have presented lectures by UBC faculty members as well as other world class scholars and news-makers that have brought university and community together. Since 2009, the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre has collaborated with the Vancouver Institute in webcasting selected lectures for an off-campus audience. The University Archives holds audio and video tapes of the more recent lectures, which are also listed as a distinct collection in cIRcle.
