Message from the President

The title of our 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, All Our Relations, is the English equivalent of the phrase kahkiyaw kiwâhkômâkaninawak, familiar to many North American Indigenous peoples as a means of formally acknowledging the interconnectedness of family and all their relations.

Guided by this spirit, the University of Regina believes that our strength lies in our relationships and our interconnectedness with each other.

In today’s world, these relationships are increasingly important – especially the meaningful connections and mutual respect between people from different cultures and countries. These connections bring diversity as well as different worldviews and perspectives that add to the strength of our University and community. They are part of a longstanding tradition of international education at our University, which currently has academic partnerships in 64 countries around the world.File

These partnerships help to build and strengthen the University’s diverse campus. Students from more than 80 countries now call our University home, thus enriching the student experience by bringing global perspectives to our campus and provincial community. UR International is deeply committed to the success of these students, offering academic, social, life skills, and language services to help them make the most of their University of Regina education.

At the same time, through UR International many domestic students and faculty members undertake international study, research, internship, and exchange opportunities each year to broaden their experience and further develop as “citizens of the world.”

Whether you are an international student interested in studying at the University of Regina, a Canadian student looking for opportunities to study abroad, or a faculty member or institution hoping to partner with us on a teaching or research initiative, our UR International “one-stop shop” should be your first destination. I encourage you to browse our website, learn about our services, and contact us directly to learn how we can work together to change the world through international education.

 

Thank you for your interest in the University of Regina.

 

Thomas Chase

Interim President and Vice-Chancellor
