International Development

The International Development & Faculty Engagement office strives to broaden and deepen SFU's involvement in international development activities. International development initiatives at Simon Fraser University aim to:

  • Recognize our social responsibility and global citizenship through mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations.
  • Work with faculty wishing to engage in international development work and capacity building initiatives.
  • Encourage the development of often life-changing opportunities for students, faculty and staff to undertake international assignments.
  • Enhance the internationalization of SFU’s curriculum that reflects the needs of students, and expertise of faculty.

By engaging Faculty in international development, we contribute to SFU internationalization goals by strengthening SFU’s reputation as a university of global renown and enabling international application of SFU’s innovations in thought and practice.
