Global Engagement Plan

University of Calgary launches new Global Engagement Plan

The new Global Engagement Plan (GEP) is an update to the 2013 International Strategy, reflecting our continued institutional commitment to meaningful connection and interaction with the world around us. The plan stays true to our original vision, while taking into account emerging global developments.

Over the next five years, the GEP will guide our priorities and resources as we work toward our international goals in support of Growth Through Focus. The GEP will continue to transform our institution and how we engage globally by focusing on strategic partnership development, faculty-driven initiators of international activities, incentivized activities, building capacity and sustainability.
