Building Global Competencies

UFV’s “Building Global Competencies” project aims to equip students with the necessary skills and applied experiences to engage richly with the global world, while simultaneously acquiring invaluable cross-cultural communication and hands-on opportunities to learn from diverse cultures and settings. Further, the Project will address inequality and advocate for student representation from those with Indigenous backgrounds, low-income students, and students with disabilities. To achieve these goals, UFV will create international internships in cooperation with its existing partnerships with NGOs in, for example, Kenya, Mexico, and Nepal.
