Dozens of international flags flew above the path leading to First Peoples House from the University Centre on Sept. 30. The University of Victoria, in the biggest such event ever for our institution, hosted 51 ambassadors, high commissioners and consuls general from 47 countries around the world—from Ethiopia, Ireland and Iceland to Guatemala, Poland and the Philippines.
The Heads of Mission tour of BC was planned in collaboration between the Governments of British Columbia and Canada to showcase our country as a mature economy.
The UVic visit provided an opportunity for the university to advance its reputation and to emphasize UVic’s focus on internationalization, clean energy and oceans, as well as highlight the university’s ongoing commitment to Indigenizing the academy.
