Originally conceived and taught in the early 1990s but formally recognized in a Memorandum of Understanding signed Feb 27 2006 Borderlands is a research program developed jointly by the UFV and Western Washington University.  Recognizing there are more commonalities than differences between British Columbia and Washington State, the initiative explores economic, environmental and socio-cultural issues and concerns related to development and sustainability in the Fraser Lowlands Map area.  The first published study was released in January 2008.
