The International Development Institute is pleased to welcome 28 of our Indonesian partners from the Sulawesi Economic Development Strategy (SEDS) project to Humber from May 12–June 21, 2014. The SEDS project pairs Humber with 7 universities in Sulawesi, Indonesia, to increase the capacity of the partner institutes to foster entrepreneurship within their student bodies, and to bolster small and medium    size enterprises (SMEs) in the community.


Following two Training-of-Trainers workshops conducted by Humber faculty in Sulawesi, the delegation of Indonesian lecturers will spend six weeks in Toronto experiencing first-hand how entrepreneurship is taught and fostered at Humber, as well as interacting with the wider business community and visiting successful local SMEs.


The SEDS delegation will be working with Humber staff and faculty from many departments, including the Centre for Teaching and Learning, the International Centre, the Business School and more. Their visit provides an exciting opportunity for our visiting partners, and Humber faculty and students to learn from one another, exploring best practices in Canada and Indonesia. We hope you will join us in welcoming them, and please stop by and say hello if you are at the Lakeshore Campus!
