Improving the Delivery of International Mobility Wraparound Services to Indigenous and Low-income Students

Indigenous and low-income students in GSO programs often encounter obstacles while travelling abroad due to the absence of tailored pre-departure training and orientation. This can result in difficulties adapting to cultural differences, language barriers, and other challenges.

This project aims to provide better resources and training modules primarily for Indigenous and low-income students, who make up a significant portion of Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s student population. The project includes the development of an online course with three modules covering Global Citizenship, Risk Management, and Intercultural Competencies.

Training and orientation should equip them with the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate cross-cultural differences, stay safe, and succeed. This will not only help these students have a successful study abroad experience but also promote equity and diversity in global education programs.
