Welcome to the Global Engagement Program

Launched in 2018, the Global Engagement Seminar Program is a capstone seminar which brings together students from across the six faculties and the affiliated colleges to develop greater awareness of contemporary global issues as well as to work collaboratively to think through creative solutions for tackling them.

Students work in small-group settings to build collaborative, interdisciplinary, and effective proposals for solving global problems ranging from international governance, violent conflict, food security, indigenous rights, refugee settlement, homelessness, and youth engagement in social policy. Led by the Jarislowsky Fellows – distinguished individuals with records of success either in or outside of academia – and faculty members with research expertise in contemporary global challenges, the program will culminate in a high-profile Summit, offering students the opportunity to showcase their projects and proposals.

I am a fourth-year Chemical Engineering student. I love learning about the world and deconstructing complex problems, whether the question is the optimization of a petrochemical plant or figuring out what exactly makes a good movie soundtrack.
