SAGE ‑ St. Lucia and Dominica

Dalhousie Faculty of Agriculture is partnering with Algonquin College on two projects to support the strengthening of skills-based education in Saint Lucia and Dominica.  Funded by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) these Skills to Access the Green Economy (SAGE) projects focus on climate-smart crop production in Saint Lucia (SAGE-06, lead by Dalhousie University) and climate-resilient construction in Dominica (SAGE-02, lead by Algonquin College). In addition to curriculum development, these projects also prioritize student success, gender equality and recruiting and retaining students from vulnerable and underserved populations. These projects bring together faculty and staff from Canadian partner institutions to work with their counterparts from  Saint Lucia and Dominica between 2020-2023, and include exciting mobility opportunities for Dalhousie students!
