WorldVIU Days

Why we celebrate WorldVIU Days

At Vancouver Island University, WorldVIU Days is a week-long annual event where we explore how culture influences the way we make sense of the world – our worldview.

This year we will focus on creating a connected community through showcasing efforts that students, staff and faculty are making to increase social connections between people from different cultural backgrounds.

Check out the 2020 Schedule of Events!


The purpose of the week is to:

  • Raise awareness and build appreciation for the cultural diversity on campus
  • Celebrate culture and recognize the richness that diverse perspectives bring to our campus and community


Returning in 2020

WorldVIU Days will host the annual Intercultural Hip Hop Forum, exploring identity, culture, and community building through hip hop. With workshops, performances, and a panel discussion, this forum connects VIU at a whole new level!
