Intercultural Learning Program

The Intercultural Learning Program (ILP) is a way to build your intercultural skills at home or abroad. The ILP involves discovering how your own cultural identities shape the way you understand and operate in the world and recognize culture at work in your everyday experiences. Simply immersing yourself in a different culture does not automatically lead to deeper intercultural awareness. Growing your intercultural understanding depends on a blend of personal motivation and guided learning.

There are many benefits to enhancing your intercultural sensitivity, but here are just a few:

  • Reflect on how your cultural identities shape the way you understand and operate in the world; 
  • Recognize the multiple ways that a person’s culture can influence their behaviour and expectations;
  • Develop intercultural awareness, knowledge, and skills transferable to the social, academic, and professional contexts;
  • Understand the hidden history of Canada and the impact of colonialism on the Indigenous peoples; 
  • Develop your own intercultural learning goals and strategies to better understand, communicate, and navigate cultural commonalities and differences.

Students who participate in our program have reflected on the benefits of this learning, including more confidence in their intercultural communication skills and becoming better mentors and leaders in their communities.

Program Eligibility 

All U of T graduate and undergraduate students are welcome to join the program. Ideally, the program will be a mix of domestic students, international students, and both inbound and outbound exchange students. 

How the Program Works?  

These interactive sessions will provide you opportunities to meet and engage in discussions with other students who strive to develop intercultural mindsets and skills.

You will also have the opportunity to join an Intercultural Connection Group made up of 4-5 students per group, where you will meet new people, explore new cultures, and apply the intercultural frameworks through self-organized intercultural outings. Most importantly, have fun with your new peers! The ILP also offers other experiential outings for you to join throughout the academic year.

Your participation in the ILP is eligible for Co-Curricular Record (CCR). To receive CCR recognition, participants must complete the following requirements in 2022-2023:

  • Attendance of all 5 sessions;
  • Participate in at least one experiential outing or self-directed learning module; and
  • Complete an Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) assessment and debrief session.

You are also welcome to participate in the sessions depending on your interests and availability. 

Program Schedule and Registration

The program will run from September to November and from January to March. You may enroll in the program on CLNx under “Program Registration”.

Our Stories

The University of Toronto has students from over 170 countries and regions, all of whom have diverse experiences and viewpoints.

The ‘Our Stories’ series started in 2021 as a tri-campus, virtual discussion for Black History Month where a panel was created to hear directly from U of T students. Black international students were invited to share their stories, personal narratives, and lived experiences while having the session facilitated by another international student. Click here to learn more through the Varsity newspaper article, covering the February 2022 Black History Month event.

Based on positive feedback, the ‘Our Stories’ series has been expanded to commemorate various awareness months celebrated by different communities at the University of Toronto campuses. This program is hosted by the tri-campus international offices (Centre for International Experience at St. George, International Education Centre at Mississauga & the International Student Centre at Scarborough).
