Students must be ready for a globalized world, says new SFU provost

February 22, 2016

Students must be prepared for a “quickly changing world,” said new Simon Fraser University Provost Peter Keller in an interview with the Vancouver Sun. “I think certainly in today’s world that looking at Aboriginal or Indigenous participation in postsecondary education should be very high on the university’s radar screen.” He added that while universities must prepare students for today’s job market, they must also keep an eye on the bigger context, given the rapid pace of change. “[Students] should be (world) savvy and ready to understand what it means to participate in a knowledge economy in a globalized world," he said.
