The latest edition of McMaster University’s International Activity Compendium is now online on the McMaster Global Engagement Hub, a portal for accessing information about the university's global engagement model, supports, services, opportunities, news and events. 

Spearheaded by the Global Health Office, the compendium showcases McMaster's research and scholarly activities with global involvement and impact and is among a wide range of resources, activities, and opportunities for global engagement that have been developed in support of McMaster’s global engagement strategy. 

The compendium contains snapshots of the nearly 2000 partnerships in 247 countries, territories and islands worldwide, representing a 41% increase in global activities reported since 2014 when the compendium was last published. Currently, the compendium is made up of recent and ongoing activities; however, faculty will soon be able to add their global projects to the compendium on a continuous basis.

McMaster faculty, staff, and students had the opportunity to learn more about the compendium and other current initiatives from leaders across the university, who spoke at the first annual McMaster Global Engagement Town Hall, held last week in L.R. Wilson Hall as part of MacGlobal (October 22 – November 9) – three weeks of international programming to showcase the many international activities taking place campus-wide.

“McMaster’s global impact is significant, and the compendium is evidence of that, showcasing the research and scholarly activities that span across all faculties,” said Andrea Baumann, associate vice-president Global Health, who spoke at last week's Town Hall.

The International Activity Compendium was first conceived and delivered by McMaster’s Global Health Office in 2008, and after multiple print editions has now been reworked as an online resource.
