The Li Ka Shing Liberal Arts Initiative

Enriching opportunities for students and scholars of McGill and Shantou Universities

Through a special partnership between McGill’s Faculty of Arts and the College of Liberal Arts of Shantou University, exchange opportunities are available for students and scholars from both institutions to share expertise, form research collaborations, and explore the distinct cultural, political and intellectual traditions of Canada and China. All programs are generously funded by the Li Ka Shing (Canada) Foundation.
