The number of students who have participated in intercultural training on campus to date for this academic year is already nearly double the 2016-17 total.

A total of 1,520 students, most in student leadership positions, have attended tailored sessions offered by the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC). This includes 152 students who have completed the newly-expanded, five-session Intercultural Awareness Certificate program delivered by staff at QUIC and the Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre. The certificate has received high satisfaction scores among participants: 4.2 to 4.7 out of 5.

“We are thrilled to see this increased interest in intercultural learning, as well as the high levels of satisfaction with the certificate program,” says Jyoti Kotecha, QUIC Director. “Our goal is to provide relevant, engaging content and context that promotes self-reflection and a commitment to integrate and apply what is learned into participants’ daily lives and actions.”
