UAlberta International works in collaboration with faculties to create partnerships in training and education that share UAlberta’s expertise with partners abroad through the International Capacity Development Programs and Projects unit (ICDPP).

UAlberta has extensive national and international network of relationships at government, private sector, and civil society levels. ICDPP works within these networks to identify opportunities that will benefit faculties. 

With in-depth regional market knowledge and cultivated expertise in partnership management, logistics, recruitment and marketing, ICDPP will turn opportunities into concrete activities that benefit faculties, and UAlberta more broadly.

Within this context, the ICDPP unit can assist faculties in identifying revenue sources to support, enrich, and expand their international activities and enhance UAlberta’s international reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and global engagement.
