Global Engagement at UFV
Here at International, we offer both international and domestic students a variety of intercultural global engagement programs in a virtual setting in light of COVID-19 restrictions.
To take full advantage of your university experience, you want to make the most out of your time out of the classroom. Getting involved with activities on or off campus is a great way to gain experience and skills, meet people from many cultures, and have fun.
The Global Lounge Hub
The place to join events like Virtual Game Night, Language Exchange, or a place to just hang out and engage with your peers. UFV's Global Engagement team will always promise a good time!
