Centre For Excellence

Global Competence

Global citizens with global competencies.

As learners, employees, and employers we are all citizens of the world.

We work to ensure our learning and work environments reflect inclusive, respectful communities. Our work, our courses, and our micro-credential programs are grounded in intercultural understanding and aim to create a sense of community and ethical citizenship on campus and beyond.

Intercultural Centre

The School of Global Access developed the Intercultural Centre (IC) to foster and advance diversity and inclusion at Bow Valley College.

The IC provides training, workshops, community volunteerism, and College-wide events for staff, faculty, and learners.

Whether you want to learn about other cultures, develop intercultural competency skills, become a leader, or find volunteer opportunities, we have something for you.

We’re located at Bow Valley College, North Campus N322. Get in touch at intercultural@bowvalleycollege.ca!
