Curious about studying abroad? This department sets up exchanges, field schools, contests and more

By Jessica Harrison, Global Engagement

Greetings from Global Engagement! In case you don’t know, we are part of Douglas College International and oversee lots of cool initiatives like field schools, exchanges and other study abroad opportunities, as well as on-campus events like Global Engagement Days, a once-a-year chance for students to gather on campus and share aspects of their culture and more.

We are excited to announce some new programming for the Summer Semester. Here are some activities to look forward to:


Instagram challenges

  • Some of these will be part of the contests, and some will just be for fun. In either case, they’ll be a great way to connect and stay involved with GE.

Video stories

  • Do you have a funny travel story? Do you have a disaster travel story? Where in the world do you want to visit most? We will be asking everyone to film videos in response to the questions we release. For every question that you reply to, you have a chance to win a prize!


  • We believe it’s important to discuss topics affecting people around the world. If you are interested in global issues – climate change, globalization, gender equality, etc. – these discussions will be for you.

Information detailing our activities over the Summer can be found online. We will also be releasing information about activities on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, so stay tuned!

Curious about studying abroad in the future?

So far, all programs are going ahead as scheduled for Fall Semester! If you missed out on applying for a study abroad opportunity this year, now is the time to start planning for 2021! Our deadline for the next round of exchange applications is Sept. 30, and information about countries you can go to can be found on our website.

If you do a one-semester exchange, you are eligible to receive a scholarship of up to $4,000!

The Global Engagement team wishes you all a wonderful, safe Summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
