Coast Mountain College participated in the World Congress 2023 which was held in April. It is known to be the largest event in its field and serves as a global platform where postsecondary leaders do the following:
- Engage in discussions
- Exchange ideas
- Expand their collective knowledge
Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) and the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) organized the World Congress 2023 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, focusing on the theme of Collective Intelligence. During the event, Hyeyoung, the Manager of Student Recruitment, delivered a presentation known as ‘Building Partnerships for Diversifying the International Student Body and Improving Employability’. It focused on many things, such as:
- Diversity within the international student community
- Exploring ways in which academic institutions can collaborate with global student service providers
Hyeyoung had the following to say:
“The CICan pre-conference forum that engages discussion around the unique opportunities and challenges within rural, remote and Northern institutions is one of my favourite conferences. It was my great pleasure to share the benefits of practicing empathy in international recruitment, in particular, for student diversity, and how to build successful partnerships to move forward with this empathy to provide prospective students with real solutions to real challenges of coming to a rural, remote and Northern institution.”
