” The specific and varied stories shared by the senior Deans/Directors of International provided a long-term picture of the necessary foundation needed for international education start-up operations, right through to the bumps, bruises and huge successes experienced as a result of comprehensive internationalization mandates. The conversations were compelling and the strong mentor/mentee relationships continue to support emerging leaders across Canada’s college sector.”
