International Strategy

For nearly 140 years the University of Manitoba has been recognized as Manitoba’s premier university – shaping our leaders, enhancing our community, and conducting world-class research. Our home is Manitoba but our impact is global. The University has a tradition of excellence in research, scholarly work and creative activities. Our connection to the agricultural and natural landscapes of the Canadian Prairie, to the Arctic, to local and Indigenous communities has shaped our research focus. We have made pioneering contributions in many fields and developed life-changing solutions to problems being faced by peoples in Manitoba, Canada and the world.

Through projects and collaborative activities around the world, University of Manitoba faculty, staff and students bring international perspectives to learning and research and enrich the overall university experience. They become crucial agents of change in our local and global community. The University engages on two continents through the Partners for Health Development in Africa and the Karnataka Health Promotion Trust in India. Our International Centre offers exchange opportunities with partner universities in dozens of countries.  

The University developed an International Strategy document after an extensive review and consultation process in 2014.
