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.
