Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, Ottawa (Ontario).
The Awards for Excellence in Internationalization program sponsored by Scotiabank and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada grants awards to university programs that have been undertaken to prepare Canada's future leaders to excel in a globalized environment. The 34 submissions in 2002 are described in this report. These submissions show that Canadian universities are taking an increasingly innovative, strategic, and sustainable approach to integrating an international dimension into their teaching, research, and community outreach. The first category of programs, "Broadening the Student Experience," describes programs that help student gain greater international knowledge and cultural perspectives. The second category, "Maximizing the Contribution of Research to Internationalization," shows how research carried out with international partners is influencing the institution's internationalization process. The third category, "Enhancing Internationalization through Support for Communities," describes efforts in which cooperation with local, national, and international partners affects the institution's overall internationalization efforts. Each program description contains an overview, a discussion of the program's contribution to internationalization, and contact information. (SLD)
