1. ‘the creation of equal and ethical higher education partnerships.’ York and JMI have a signed agreement for research collaboration, student exchanges and collaborative partnerships. We will explore the partnership thus far to analyze the process, ethics and equity in the planning, and partnering for education. Research continues to reveal that imperialism often pervades Global North/South encounters and exchanges. Our goal is to identify and grapple with obstacles, which get in the way of achieving respectful and ethical North/South collaborations.
2.”… increasing focus on the internationalization of the curriculum and of related learning outcomes”. In this era of globalization and internationalizing higher education, many professionals are finding it necessary to rethink research, pedagogy and practice to be especially mindful of diversity among our student body.

The aim is to review and discuss how our curricular is educating students for social work practice in a globalized and transnational age.
