Faculty Development & Internationalisation

Head IRC

The International Resource Center (IRC) under the umbrella of the Directorate of Faculty Development and Internationalization (DFDI) plays a crucial role in creating an inclusive and globally engaged campus environment, by providing opportunities to faculty and students to enrich their academic experience with international exposure. The IRC DFDI, LCWU team coordinates, collaborates, and partners with international universities to offer faculty and student exchange opportunities so that they could expand international and cultural networks of research and build entrepreneurship collaborations. Technical and financial assistance, regarding funding opportunities and paper work, is also provided to support faculty and students going abroad for summer and semester exchange programs, conferences, international competitions, and more. 

The purpose of setting up this hub is to promote and enhance international education programmers with the expressed goal of increasing knowledge transfer, student and staff mobility and knowledge and skill sharing between LCWU and the global academic community. 

To meet the growing global challenges and to compete with other local and international universities, LCWU needs to implement the following internationalization strategies:

•    Staff and Student Exchange Programmes

•    PhD programmes for Staff

•    Placement in Foreign Universities (in collaboration with Careers and Placement Office)

•    Linkages and Research Collaborations

•    International Conferences, Seminars

•    Distance Learning Programmes

•    Participation in Video Conferenced Lectures and Seminars

•    Attracting and recruiting International Students

IRC is committed to assisting each department with their internationalization efforts as listed above.
