Welcome Message

My colleagues and I would like to welcome you warmly to the School of R. PerinPublic and International Affairs. You will find here a friendly and intellectually stimulating environment, as well as exciting career opportunities both at home and abroad.

The School’s young and dynamic Faculty members are active researchers in their fields with expertise in a wide variety of areas including immigration and refugee policy, the environment, international development, health systems, citizen participation, and issues of governance at all levels.

Our students come from diverse academic backgrounds. All are bilingual, some speak three or more languages. Many have spent time abroad either on exchange or in some professional capacity. Some have already acquired valuable work experience in government, the media, or community service. We are especially proud of this rich diversity and wish to build on it by making available to them an array of internships as well as exchanges with sister program in Quebec and abroad.

Thanks among others to the Director of the School and the Civil-Servant-in-Residence, students have direct contact with leading public figures in Canadian and international life. The School therefore offers a unique opportunity for expanding one’s horizons. We are confident that you will find your time at the School an unforgettable experience.

Roberto Perin,

Graduate Program Director, Glendon School of Public and International Affairs
