Dalhousie University provides international field courses in non-traditional destinations (Colombia, New Zealand), focusing on delivering culturally appropriate mobility experiences for Indigenous, Black and African Nova Scotian students. Our partner institutions are the Universidad Catolica de Manizale, Colombia and Te Herenga Wake-Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The project creates online and in-person international learning experiences, including service learning in Colombia, and cultural connections in New Zealand.
Students’ international and cultural experiences lead to academic and employment benefits. Institutional linkages with partners will be strengthened, and community linkages and connections will be developed.
