On today’s episode, we’ll be talking about culture. We’ll explore the cultural nuances of international students’ transition to Canada. And we’ll talk about what we can do, as students and employees, to help make Centennial a bit more welcoming and inclusive to all.

Our episode host, Pearl Vas, will be talking to students, Krunal Shah and Beatriz Delgado, and to Global Citizenship and Equity Learning Advisor, Nita Saini, and faculty member, Jane Sakay. In addition, this episode features short clips from several students and employees who shared their stories. Sincere thanks to all of them for their candidness. 


The videos and podcasts were recorded when our campuses were open, prior to March 2020. Centennial College has transitioned to offering academic and co-curricular programs online. We value opportunities to engage with our students to support their learning and professional goals. For all Global experience programs, SaGE will offer Virtual Global Experience programming in the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters until travel advisories have been lifted and the Canadian government has deemed travel for education is safe. Students can still take part in fulfilling opportunities such as studying virtually with one of Centennial’s international exchange partners, participating in an applied research project with a partner in Morocco, or completing a virtual internship with agencies in Costa Rica and China.
