LaSalle College received the bronze award in the “Internationalization Excellence Award” category from Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan).
Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan), the voice of Canada's public colleges, institutes and cégeps, announced the winners of its 2018 Excellence Awards during its annual conference in Victoria, British Columbia.
The Internationalization Excellence Award recognizes a college or institute that has shown leadership in the internationalizing of their entire institution for the benefit of its learners and community.
The institutions are evaluated on student and faculty participation in international and cross-cultural projects and activities, on the integration of international students, on international partnerships for development or two-way exchanges, and on the integration of international knowledge and skills into the curriculum.
The news was announced during the awards ceremony luncheon held on April 30 at the Victoria Conference Centre.
The conference attendees applauded the winners, who all strive for excellence in the college and institute system.
The LCI Education network, of which LaSalle College is a member, had the chance to meet with Shakira, Founder of Pies Descalzos, while she was in Montreal for her concert on August 8.
