Together, we will position ourselves as a global intellectual hub
Our comprehensive strategy for internationalization positions us as a global intellectual hub. Students, faculty and staff will promote new discoveries, ideas and applications that have global impact.
We live in a highly interconnected world. Technological advances allow us to share information across borders, cultures and linguistic barriers.
Our city and our country demand international and domestic graduates who are competitive in a global marketplace. They must be able to adapt to diverse cultural, economic and governmental environments.
We will continue to provide energetic opportunities for our students to develop cross-cultural competencies and unique areas of knowledge. They will contribute to civil society and capacity development on a global scale.
Student experiences to unleash potential
Invest in a different kind of energy
Community development students thrive in Ghana
The University of Calgary encourages cross-cultural exchanges that make a local and global impact.
When UCalgary students Amy Bruce and Heather Lee won the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship, they were thrilled to travel and learn together. Both students are taking development studies in the Faculty of Arts.
The pair did development work with the Community Based Rehabilitation Program (CBR) in Sandema, Ghana. Bruce worked on funding proposals for a new disability resource centre and a maternal health clinic.
