The McMaster Seminar on Higher Education is a series of discussions, seminars and lectures hosted by the Office of the President. The aim of the annual series is to encourage dialogue and inspire critical thought within the McMaster and the broader Hamilton communities. It is intended that the topics will be timely, interdisciplinary, and far-reaching, guided by the key questions and challenges facing higher education institutions and the communities they serve. The series will emphasize the importance to the academy, and to society as a whole, of thinking critically and engaging in meaningful discussion of challenging issues.
For the 2016/17 year the theme of the series is “Canada @ 150”, and will focus on the role and responsibility of the Academy in relation to the definition and realization of a national identity. All members of the community are welcome and encouraged to attend.
