Perhaps not many Christians in BC’s Lower Mainland are aware that the President of UBC, Santa J. Ono, is himself an evangelical Christian. As a professor of medicine and biology, Ono has worked at Harvard, Johns Hopkins, University College London, and Emory, where he served as faculty advisor for several InterVarsity Christian Fellowship chapters. Prior to his appointment at UBC, he was president of the University of Cincinnati. Ono is deeply committed to diversity and being open about one’s religious beliefs while being respectful to those with differing beliefs. His favourite book is The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief by Francis S. Collins.

On Saturday, May 12, Ono will give a plenary address at our conference, entitled “Science And Faith: Servant Leadership and the Secular University.” Drawing on his own experience as a researcher, academic, and administrator, he will discuss how servant leadership can help faith and science co-exist at the modern secular university

See the full talk schedule for list of all talks.

Single-day Saturday admission includes all conference sessions that day, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner–and it includes admission to our special evening gala with Katharine Hayhoe, live music, and a reception with hors d’oeuvres.
