On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, UBC will host a Day of Learning to reflect upon the 75th anniversary of Japanese Canadian internment, and the 5th anniversary of the UBC Honorary Degree Ceremony for the 76 Japanese Canadian students expelled in 1942.

This one-day program will explore past and present societal themes of xenophobia, racism and discrimination, from the removal of indigenous peoples, to the incarceration of over 21,000 Japanese Canadians in 1942, and the rise of Islamophobia today.
