Scope and content

Item is a narrated, promotional film produced by Yaletown Productions Inc. for SFU. Provides a general overview of SFU, its students, programs and location, with an emphasis on SFU as a global university, noting that 'what's happening in the outside world is what's happening here.' Includes sound bites from classrooms and lectures, and closes with pipe band performing and stills of Convocation Mall. Similar in thrust to the 1986 film, "Simon Fraser University: Meeting the Challenge Together." Also features early SFU footage seen in the 1983 "SFU Liaison Program" film (See F-85, Office of the Registrar fonds).
