Welcome to a new season at Green College!

All public events and presentations this fall will be on Zoom, some hosted by the College and others by our programming partners. You can find the joining information and links on the individual event pages by clicking on the links below. Visit our Events Calendar for more information:

We ask that all guests in our virtual Coach House kindly keep their microphones muted when not taking part in discussion. Moderators will let you know when questions are invited. As usual, we will record the main presentations but not the Q&A. In keeping with UBC’s policy in this regard, we rely upon you to be courteous and considerate of speakers and other guests online. Inappropriate behaviour or comments during a lecture may result in your being excluded from the event in progress and future online events at the College.

We look forward to “seeing” you soon!


Public Lecture in the Coach House.

At Green College, we believe that the graduate school experience is enhanced through compelling public lectures and lasting connections.

Whether you're a resident or a guest, there are plenty of opportunities to become involved in College life: attend one of our groundbreaking lecture series, stay for dinner and a fireside chat with a Chief Justice of Canada, apply to be a visiting fellow in residence, and more.

Our programming is all outside of typical working hours, emphasizing an extracurricular time to complement academic work.

Join us for an exchange of ideas. Stay for the friendship and hospitality. Take a look at our latest programming schedule here.
