In recognition of extraordinary global engagement efforts, the University of Calgary has been named the winner of the 2017 Institutional Award for Global Learning, Research and Engagement. The award, presented by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), recognizes institutions at the leading edge of inclusive and comprehensive efforts to internationalize their campuses.
The University of Calgary is working to become a global intellectual hub through our international strategy as well as leveraging the four pillars included in the strategy — diversity, cross-cultural competencies, partnerships and international development.
“The University of Calgary is committed to empowering our students to solve challenges locally, nationally and internationally through curricular and co-curricular experiences,” says Dru Marshall, provost and vice-president (academic). “We are striving to ensure our campus is an inclusive place, where everyone has the opportunity to experience high-quality teaching and learning and research and pursue life experience that helps them become connectors and leaders.”
