New structure aligns international programs and activities
The Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) will report to the new vice-provost (international) John Dixon starting July 1.
The change will enhance the existing synergies between the two offices and add capacity for developing and delivering central programming. It will also strengthen Queen’s international activities that advance the university’s international agenda.
“I look forward to working more closely with QUIC’s outstanding staff, whose collective talents can contribute to a wide range of initiatives, and enable closer collaboration with the international offices of the faculties and other units as appropriate,” says vice-provost (international) John Dixon.
Maintaining QUIC’s highly important work in the area of cross-cultural counseling and support for all members of the student body, whether international or domestic will remain a high priority. To facilitate this, there will be a dotted-line relationship between QUIC and Student Affairs. The centre currently reports jointly to Student Affairs and the international portfolio of the associate vice-principal (academic & international).
“I would like to thank QUIC director Wayne Myles for his excellent work and the QUIC staff for supporting and advancing Queen’s international programs and activities,” says provost and vice-principal (academic) Bob Silverman. ”I appreciate the role QUIC plays in the internationalization and cross-cultural enhancement of the campus.”
