Government of Gujarat and Canada’s Seneca College sign agreement to provide global learning opportunities

Toronto, January 10, 2013 – The Government of Gujarat and Canada's Seneca College have signed a Letter of Cooperation that will accelerate the internationalization of higher education in the state and provide new global learning opportunities for Gujarat's young people.

The Letter was signed at the International Conference of Academic Institutions taking place at Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University in Gandhinagar by Mr. N.N. Bhuptani, Deputy Director, Commissionerate of Technical Education and Mr. David Agnew, President of Seneca College. The signing took place in the presence of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, a strong proponent of internationalization of education.  

"We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with the Government and academic institutions of Gujarat," said Mr. Agnew. "This is a State that has shown tremendous commitment to higher education, and we look forward to working together to promote student exchange, faculty exchange, joint research projects and curriculum development."

The government and Seneca will also work together to create a Higher Education Forum that will support access, achievement and equity goals for Gujarati students, including through the use of online resources.  

Gujarat is one of India's most industrialized states and Ahmedabad, where the Conference is being held, is the third fastest growing city in the world. The state has seen rapid economic and social development in the past few years, including significant expansion of the higher education sector.

With campuses across the Greater Toronto Area, Seneca offers degrees, diplomas and certificates renowned for their quality and respected by employers. Combining the highest academic standards with practical, hands-on learning, expert teaching faculty and the latest technology ensures Seneca graduates are career-ready.
