April 8, 2009

This fall, the University of Calgary will open Global Village, a student residence designed to offer a multicultural living experience. The first living learning community at uCalgary, Global Village will pair one international student with a Canadian student in a 2-bedroom suite. The students will participate in programs developed to accomplish 3 key learning outcomes: increasing students' cultural awareness, demonstrating global and local awareness, and developing leadership skills in a multicultural community. Students' participation in the Global Village community will be recognized on their co-curricular record. UToday
