Centre For International Programs

The Centre for International Programs, the first of its kind in Canada, aims to facilitate, stimulate and support a continuously growing range of University involvement in international activities. This goal is accomplished by developing and maintaining contacts with university partners around the world, supporting study abroad programs, and providing liaison with government agencies, private sector companies and non-governmental organizations. The Centre promotes development cooperation partnerships with developing countries, provides information on international opportunities and resources to students and faculty, provides support for international students and manages the University's student exchange programs. The Centre contributes to university policy on internationalization and serves as a focal point for links with other universities, government agencies, and private sector firms wishing to cooperate with the university in international activities.
