The internationalization of education is key to developing intercultural awareness and competencies which enrich our faculty, students and staff and prepare us to better contribute to our diverse communities and globalized world.

Internationalization of higher education is the intentional process of integrating an international, intercultural or global dimension into the purpose, functions and delivery of post-secondary education, in order to enhance the quality of education and research for all students and staff and to make a meaningful contribution to society.
