As our global village expands, the University of Regina is
becoming increasingly committed to internationalization.
In April of last year, University of Regina President and Vice-Chancellor Dr. Vianne Timmons visited Brazil on a mission led
by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. As
a result of that trip, 10 students arrived in Regina on New
Year's Day to begin studying at the University. They are the
first of 65 Brazilian students who will attend the University this
year as part of the Science Without Borders program – a joint
initiative between the governments of Canada and Brazil.
A focus on internationalization – and initiatives such as
Science Without Borders – foster greater cross cultural
exchanges, and increased knowledge and understanding of
our global society.
The students featured here are Tullio Rocio Pitanga and
Mariana Tracastro de Souza, who are enrolled in the Faculty
of Engineering and Applied Science.
