Skills for Global Innovators

The ‘Skills for Global Innovators’ project uses an endogenous concept of collaboration that connects the Agricultural Campus to its environs through credit, certificate and microcredit course offerings inclusive of an International Learning Experience (ILE) for two historically marginalized communities in Nova Scotia – Mi’kmaq and Black/African Nova Scotians (ANS). It engages internal and external partners, who are already engaged in community development work and promotion of higher education, to expand interventions beyond unit and community specific objectives and improve local outcomes through global mobility and intercultural learning within agriculture and related skills training programs, reducing barriers to study/work abroad opportunities.
