Lakehead University had the pleasure of hosting Apoorva Srivastava, India's Consul General in Toronto, on the Thunder Bay campus the afternoon of Wednesday, July 27.
Over the course of the visit, Lakehead organized a campus tour and hosted a meeting with Dr. David Barnett, Provost and Vice-President (Academic), members from the Office of Research and Innovation and Lakehead International, and faculty members from India. Consul General Srivastava was introduced to various ongoing faculty-level research collaborations with institutions in India, and we highlighted Lakehead's commitment to providing excellent support to students from India throughout their academic journey.
Lakehead expressed enthusiasm to cooperate with Consul General Srivastava and her office to receive more research opportunities. The visit also included the opportunity for two international students from India to share their experiences.
Lakehead University is home to over 1500 international students annually, with more than 650 coming from India. Lakehead is excited to welcome and welcome back international students from around the world to both campuses this September.
