Katelyn Forgione (Bachelor of Child Development), Melissa Toth (International Business Administration) and Yvonne Tierney (International Business Administration) have been selected to attend the Education Without Borders conference in the United Arab Emirates from March 25 to 28. 

This annual, international student conference is designed to create networks across cultures to better understand and generate solutions for some of the world's greatest challenges. The conference achieves this by engaging the world's most innovative students and leaders in the business, technology, education, and humanitarian sectors in a collaborative forum that culminates in a commitment to action.

As in previous years, the College will be supporting the students with their travel expenses through the Student Development Grant. The students' participation is also made possible through the joint efforts of the International and Student Services departments, and the support of Faculty of Business Professor Maurice Platero.
