Impact Report

University of Calgary launches International Strategy Impact Report

In 2013, UCalgary launched its International Strategy with the goal of becoming a global intellectual hub. Developed and led by our former Provost and Vice President (Academic) Dr. Dru Marshall, it was the first strategic plan for internationalization in the university’s history.

We have come a long way since then, becoming an award-winning university for excellence and innovation in internationalization. This document highlights the significant progress made on the identified goals and targets of the International Strategy. The results in this report have informed UCalgary’s Global Engagement Plan 2020-2025, which charts the path forward.
