Canadian Colleges have grown their international student cohort significantly. How do we ensure that the college and surrounding communities are ready to support such an increase? Is internationalization of our campuses only about more international students? Should we not be preparing our domestic students to become global professionals, global entrepreneurs, and global citizens? Paul will present an overall framework for doing so and share some best practices from colleges across Canada. 

Speaker: Paul Brennan - Retired VP International, Colleges & Institutes Canada
