UM International For Faculty and Staff


"To be a centre for research and graduate education that makes a difference to our province, our nation and our world" (University of Manitoba's Strategic Plan Priority #3) require(s) that the University and its faculty and graduate students operate in an international scholarly domain and have the opportunity to work on issues that transcend local, provincial and national boundaries.  To make a difference in our World implies a global perspective.  Report of the Provost's Advisory Committee on International Relations, Feb. 2004

The University of Manitoba employs not only "world class" staff, but also staff who bring the world here to Manitoba.  Through research, publication, discourse and instruction, University of Manitoba faculty members are leading the way towards internationalizing the thoughts and experience of their students and colleagues.  As academic staff bring an international perspective to their scholarly investigation, their peer circles and their classroom, the University of Manitoba's collective learning widens and becomes truly participatory in our global community. 

Faculty members are crucial agents of learning and change in the university community.  Though many academic staff are successfully engaged in projects and collaborative activities around the world, the University of Manitoba would like to do more to help faculty members reach further and bring home their experience in more meaningful ways.  In the web pages that follow, you will discover ideas, administrative supports, funding opportunities and many examples of ways your colleagues at the University of Manitoba are "transcending local, provincial and national boundaries" in an effort to bring a global perspective to their learning and teaching.
