The office of International Development is responsible for the successful management of a large number of complex, multi-sector projects in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America. We can help you identify, initiate and manage international development projects that fit your objectives and areas of expertise.

Overview

International projects and community development initiatives have ranged in scope and budget from modest consulting and evaluation contracts to large-scale projects related to institutional capacity building, public policy, health, education, community based rehabilitation, etc.

Through our core staff and large network of faculty and professional associates, we have undertaken cutting-edge international development work focused on environmental aspects such as water resources management and governance issues in the broader context of human and social development. While doing so, we’re placing a special emphasis on education, as well as women and children’s health and well-being.

Get involved

We look forward to receiving expressions of interests from civil society organizations, development agencies, networks and the private sector, to:

  • develop and implement international development projects
  • identify and scale up innovative technical solutions for development purposes
  • conduct research for knowledge development
  • evaluate development impact
  • develop and deliver short-term training programs and exposure visits

Development education

The International Development office aims to raise on-campus awareness of the goals and benefits of internationalization, and specifically international development. We are the information gateway for opportunities in international development and we organize information seminars, symposiums, and workshops to discuss issues of innovation in international development.
