The University of British Columbia, Okanagan, has entered into a Statement of Cooperation with the Exeter College of Humanities
During a recent visit to the UK, Bryce Traister, Dean of the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, formalized a new agreement with the University of Exeter.
While attending a symposium, held at both the Streatham Campus in Exeter and the Penryn Campus in Cornwall, Professor Bryce Traister (Dean of Faculty, FCCS at UBC), met with Professor Andrew Thorpe (Pro-Vice-Chancellor and Executive Dean for the College of Humanities) and Jacqui Marshall (Exeter’s Director of People Services and Global Partnerships) to formalize the agreement.
“I am delighted to announce the Memorandum of Understanding between the University of Exeter’s College of Humanities and the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC’s Okanagan Campus.” Says Dean Traister.
The agreement aims to strengthen the relationship between the universities, and nurture a collaborative approach to education, research and academic exchanges.
Dean Traister added: “As a top 5 Russell Group member in the UK, Exeter is one of the very best locations to study the humanities and the arts, and our partnership will explore and develop vibrant research collaborations and teaching opportunities for faculty and staff across the range of program and course offerings on both campuses.”
The symposium, held from May 9 to 11, had a central theme of ‘Culture, Creativity and Well-being’, and featured researchers from UBC, Exeter, Simon Fraser University, Grenoble and the University of Northern British Columbia.
