Public forum: ISD follow up

Thank you to everyone who came out to learn more about Langara’s internationalization strategy at last week’s public forum. We took this opportunity to share the College’s definition of internationalization, celebrate the milestones that helped us get to where we are today, and get valuable feedback on the goals, objectives, and outcomes of the four pillars of internationalization.

We had 110 employees attend one of the two presentations, and approximately three dozen students and employees drop in between sessions. Winners of the prize draw have been notified by email to collect their prize.

Presentations opened with a Musqueam welcome, thank you to Gail Sparrow and kwest’kwestin (James Kew) for their participation. We also heard from Dr. Lane Trotter and Ajay Patel who extended their support and appreciation for the initiative and the progress to date. Daryl Smith presented an overview of the layout to seek feedback from our community and showed a video of support from members of our community.

Langara’s definition:

Internationalization is an intentional process to integrate an intercultural dimension in the way we teach, learn, and provide services at the College, in order to enhance the educational environment for all students and employees, while making a meaningful contribution to our community.

Four pillars:

  • Student success & development
  • Support for employees
  • An intercultural dimension
  • Global citizenship


Moving forward.

The next steps will be to finalize the draft with feedback from the public forum and present it to the Senior Leadership Team for approval. If you have questions or comments, please email for more information.
