Prof. Stephen Toope off to India with 14 other Canadian university presidents

UBC President Prof. Stephen Toope is off to India this week with the presidents of 14 other Canadian universities to strengthen educational relationships on the subcontinent.

The mission has been organized by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, and will include Gary Goodyear, Canada’s Minister of State for Science and Technology. Participants will meet with senior Indian government officials.

For UBC, the mission’s value will be to build on existing, and create new, partnerships with Indian institutions while exploring new ways to support Indian students who are pursuing degrees in Canada.
