uOttawa Chancellor's Debate

November 6, 2017 - Climate change in the age of Trump: How should Canada respond?

The University of Ottawa believes in stimulating constructive thinking that encourages discussion and raises awareness of differing perspectives on important topics. And this is the aim of the uOttawa Chancellor’s Debate, which will bring together thought-leaders, opinion-makers and exceptional individuals who, through lively exchanges and spirited discussions, will explore and discuss important contemporary issues, principally for the benefit of students.

The uOttawa Chancellor’s Debate will be held twice yearly, once in the fall and once in the spring. The formats and topics of these debates will vary. Formats will range from panel discussions to one-on-one interviews to classic, head-to-head debates, depending on the topic and the invited guests. Topics could include foreign affairs, innovation and economic growth, or justice and social policy.

The Chancellor will attend and participate in each debate. These events will be free, open to the public and webcast.
