Beyond Borders Fund supports student mobility

October 6, 2015

Donations to the President's Excellence Fund and Asia Partners Fund are being used to create a new initiative that will increase mobility opportunities for students at UVic. A total of $449,000 will be available over four academic years (2015/16 to 2018/19) through the President's Beyond Borders Fund, announced this October.

“With this fund, I’m aiming to increase two-way mobility opportunities for students to broaden their knowledge, cultural understanding and educational experiences—opportunities for domestic students to get to know Canada better or experience another part of the world and opportunities for international students who come here and enrich our campus environment. I'm grateful to the donors whose support provides more access for students who might not otherwise be able to participate in such programs.”—UVic President Jamie Cassels, QC
