International Experiences for Portage College Students

Portage College is a rural Alberta college with greater than 45% Indigenous students. Large steps have been taken in 2020-2021 to develop an International Strategy, that will include virtual and physical international experiences and will be approved by our BOG. Portage was successful in acquiring the Outbound Mobility Grant and this funding was used to complete research that assisted in the development of guidelines and best practices. This grant support will be used to hire an International Support Person who will assist in the development of programming and funding will also be used for both virtual and physical experiences.
