Professor Toope renewed a longstanding student mobility agreement between UBC and IIT Delhi, which facilitates undergraduate engineering students to spend time at each institution. IIT Delhi students have regularly received a stipend from UBC to support their studies. The renewal of this agreement marks the high level of support for this partnership at both universities.
The signing took place during Professor Toope’s recent visit to India as a member of an Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) delegation. Fifteen university and college presidents were part of this joint venture to build engagement.
