UPEI is launching a Master in Global Affairs (MGA) this fall in partnership with the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (Madrid). This twelve-month professional program is designed for those who have completed an undergraduate degree and wish to pursue careers in diplomacy, human rights, or multilateral international institutions.

Students will complete their first semester at UPEI, and then will travel to Madrid, Strasbourg, and Geneva to complete their degree.

Anyone interested in learning more about this exciting program is invited to an information session on Thursday May 31, from 3:00-4:30 pm in the Faculty Lounge of SDU Main Building (building 5).

MGA Coordinator, Dr. Doreley Carolina Coll (dcoll@upei.ca) will provide an overview of the program and answer your questions.

Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend! 

Due to the large interest in Emergency First Aid Training an additional date have been added for this training opportunity.

Emergency First Aid training will now be held Thursday June 7 and Tuesday June 12 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. The training cost is covered by UPEI for all faculty and staff. Students who require the training for on-campus employment will also have the training cost covered. Students who do not require this training for on-campus employment are welcome to attend if space allows but they will be charged for the training.

If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please email kharrison@upei.ca by June 1 and indicate which date you would like to attend.

Providing content for a course is pretty easy to do. Figuring out how to explain to students what that content should do to them and for them is far more challenging. There are numerous ways to describe learning and just as many opinions as to which is best. Are learning targets even necessary? Come hear what the E-Learning Office has to say about targets for learning. Thursday, June 7th from 2:00 to 3:00 pm in Room 265, Robertson Library. REGISTER

Facilities Management will be operating with limited staffing on June 5 and 6, 2018. This reduction in staff is due to training sessions taking place. Please keep these dates in mind when you are submitting work orders for event set-ups/tear downs, deliveries and regular maintenance requests. This will not affect any priority work orders that are submitted during this time.

Your patience and understanding is appreciated as we continue our necessary training.

This summer UPEI will be welcoming over one hundred students from around the world to our beautiful campus. These students will be here to participate in short-term intensive language camps, and enjoy summertime in PEI. Program lengths vary, and students will be here for anywhere from two weeks to six weeks.

Hosts are needed in August for two or three week programs. If you are interested in hosting one of these students or would like to find out more about Homestay Host obligations and remuneration please visit the website or contact Amy Palmer at homestay@upei.ca.

Looking for an enriching volunteer experience this summer? The UPEI English Language Centre is looking for volunteers to join us in assisting with afternoon socio-cultural activities and acting as conversation partners in hosting this year’s English language Camps for International students!

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn and strengthen valuable skills, experience other cultures, and of course have a blast doing it! Activities may include things such as trips to Anne of Green Gables, scavenger hunts, tours, on-campus workshops, beach visits, and more! If you are interested, please email Owen Shaw at oshaw@upei.ca, or call 902-566-0529.

Planning has started for this year’s Safety Week to be held September 24-28, 2018.

Although safety is a constant component of our work, study, and play here at UPEI; Safety Week is a dedicated time to bring safety awareness through fun and interactive ways while providing education and training opportunities to enhance general campus safety and strengthen UPEI’s commitment to providing a healthy and safe environment to work, study or visit.

The Health, Safety and Environment Department is looking for the following:

  • Volunteers to serve on the Safety Week Planning Committee
  • Ideas for activities and/or education sessions, themes, speakers, and topics of interest for this year’s events
  • Input on last year’s Safety Week that could help shape this year’s events
  • Names and contact information of businesses or community organizations who would have an interest in participating in Safety Week (i.e. a booth or interactive activity at tradeshow/fair)

If you can provide any of the items noted above, have questions, or feedback please contact Kathryn Harrison, Coordinator, kharrison@upei.ca or 902-566-0901 by June 1, 2018.
