Nurturing the characteristics of Global Citizenship in learners through international curricular, co-curricular and other programs has become a priority for many Canadian educators. Institutions are committing considerable human and financial resources to the goal of preparing learners for a complex and globalized world.
Ensuring the success of these programs requires skilled and intuitive managers who are able to develop best practices for their institutions and build relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
