Building Bridges Between British Columbia and Brazil

A very informative piece in The Vancouver Sun (May 3, 2012), signed by Stephen Toope, President of the University of British Columbia (UBC) and Chairman of the Board of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), and Arvind Gupta, Professor of Computer Science at UBC and Scientific Director for Mitacs, a Canadian research and training network.

They note that Canadian higher education institutions will sign many agreements with Brazilian universities “to advance research collaborations and student exchange,” but “the true bedrock from which these bridges will be built is authentic people-to-people relationships.” The link to the full article can be found here.
