UVic Dr. Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier and some of her students from the ethnographic field school tour learn about the historical town of Baracoa, Cuba.

The Office of Global Engagement helps UVic faculty plan and lead field schools to international destinations. GE will help with proposal preparation for Education Abroad Committee approval and ultimately, approval by the AVP Academic Planning.  Note, however, that individual faculties are responsible for field school management.
