Student Testimonials


Joining the Global Community is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The pandemic made me feel depressed from time to time since I felt disconnected from others. Becoming a Global Peer Educator felt like joining a big family where all the members are so friendly, motivated, and creative. Our Global Peer Program gives me precious opportunities to make new friends and communicate and work with other students in our community, so I do not feel lonely anymore."

What is this program?

The Global Peers are a dynamic group of students from diverse backgrounds working to celebrate diversity and promote inclusion. This is a student-driven initiative that focuses on building intercultural awareness and understanding across the SFU community.

"We try to motivate other students to build an inclusive community here at SFU"

Global Peers are provided with training and professional development opportunities in the areas of leadership and intercultural competency. They also have the opportunity to create events or programming that foster meaningful connections between diverse groups of students across campus.

Who can join?

This program is open to all SFU undergraduate students who are interested in:

  • Increasing learning in areas of intercultural communication and diversity
  • An opportunity to lead and support student events and initiatives
  • Building a stronger understanding of your own cultural perceptions and identities
  • An opportunity to meet and work with other students from different cultures
  • Gaining project management, teamwork, and networking skills
