UPEI joins AWB’s Network


The University of Prince Edward Island has joined the Academics Without Borders (AWB) Network, a consortium of Canadian universities and colleges that support AWB’s work with universities in disadvantaged countries. As a member, UPEI will receive access to more resources to support and coordinate its international work; the university’s faculty and staff will also have access to new volunteer opportunities. “The knowledge and experience that UPEI’s faculty and staff can offer as volunteers is invaluable to the colleges and universities we collaborate with in the developing world—it will make a real difference,” said AWB Executive Director Dr Nancy Gallini.
