Visitors to the International Centre for Students will be welcomed by a host of changes this academic year, not the least of which is the new administrative support staffer, Jacqueline St. Aubin.
Well-traveled, Ms. St. Aubin is the first person you'll meet when entering the newly renovated space on Students' Union Level 0. A former staff member at Halifax's Dalhousie University (where she worked for the James R. Johnston Chair in Black Canadian Studies), Jacquie is Montreal born and educated (English Literature graduate from McGill). Along with her husband, comic artist Claude St. Aubin, she has raised two children, 29-year-old Claudine (who now lives in Vancouver) and 28-year-old Joel (a PhD student at the University of Alberta).
The new ICS space is much improved, offering greater accessibility to students and in the end greater service to their needs.
"Moving our reception area to the front of the hallway has also improved office space for our staff," ICS director Laurel Corbiere says.
The International Centre for Students is committed to assisting international students in meeting their academic and personal goals, as well as fostering cross-cultural understanding and learning among students, staff and faculty in the University and in the surrounding community.
