Creating a "Salish Weave Circle" 

On the final day of UVic’s Indigenous Education Department (IED) Summer Institute, students are admiring each other’s handiwork. Over the past few weeks, Indigenous artist-in-residence Chris Paul has taken them through the process of making a traditional Coast Salish drum.

Celebrating two cultures 

As a second-generation Chinese-Canadian, Carmen Ho says growing up she felt divided between two worlds, “I was speaking English at school, but at home, I was speaking Cantonese.” Carmen says “It left me feeling embarrassed at times.” 

We’re so proud of our special community of loyal donors who choose to give to UVic year after year that we created this group, the Ring Road Loyalty Circle. Did you know there are currently 1,705 members of the circle and 26 members have been loyal donors for 30 years or more?


It’s your continued contributions that enable UVic to maintain its extraordinary academic environment, its commitment to dynamic learning, and its dedication to having a vital impact on people, places and planet. More about the Ring Road Loyalty Circle.
