Visiting University Scholars Program

As numerous scholars visit Western University each year, the Visiting University Scholars Program invites international scholars to visit throughout the year. Visiting University Scholars participate in teaching in selected classes as guest lecturers, speaking at specially arranged seminars and research collaboration with Western faculty members. This program provides Western faculty and students to engage with and learn more from the international community through direct interaction with recognized scholars.
