Global Engagement

The Office of Global Engagement develops and promotes global partnerships that advance UVic's strategic goals for internationalization, which includes:

  • providing support to UVic faculty and staff in furthering their international activities
  • coordinating international partnerships, projects and programs that enhance UVic's diverse intercultural and global environment.


Service updates in response to COVID-19

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Office of Global Engagement (OGE) has shifted from in-person service to a blended model of remote and in-person support.

All OGE staff can be reached via email. We recommend connecting with our team to confirm availability for in-person support.

We continue to take advice and guidance from governments and health authorities concerning the health and safety of our community and will re-open regular in-person services as appropriate.
