The University of Calgary has had international services and information for students for almost as long as it has existed. International student services were established and operating by 1974, an international student advisor was designated in the late 1970s, and a study abroad information center was established in 1977. Some of the first services for international students were established in the early 1970s in the Student Services office. In 1997, the International Student Centre (ISC) was established as a separate administrative unit with reponsibility for international student programs and advising as well as housing the study abroad resource library and administering many of the university exchange programs. The ISC is administered and housed separately from the International Centre, though it cooperates fully with the Centre in fulfilling the mandate to internationalize the University of Calgary.
The International Student Centre works with international students to assist with their adjustment to university and to Canada. They also promote international understanding to Canadians by involving them in programs that develop global experience. The ISC mission is to promote and administer international programs and develop and facilitate cross cultural experiences for both Canadian and International students.
The goals and objectives of the ISC are to: provide support and services for international students relating to their adjusment to the University of Calgary and to Canada; provide Canadian students with opportunities and information for Education Abroad activities; provide programs which act as "bridges" between Canadian and international students; include students in the development and delivery of programs and services; and contribute to the field/profession of student advising as international education.
The Faculty of Medicine at the University of Calgary had its beginnings in 1964, when a royal commission on health services in Canada outlined the projected needs for family physicians required to maintain a ratio of approximately one physician per 870 people. The commission made specific recommendations for the development of new, basic science facilities to educate future physicians. It also recommended that new medical schools be established across the country, among them a medical school at the University of Alberta in Calgary. Funds were made available from the Health Facilities Development Fund to provide up to half the cost of construction of these new medical schools.
Formally created in 1967, the first students were admitted to the University of Calgary Faculty of Medicine in 1970. The Faculty was originally housed on the University’s main campus; students in the class of 1975 were the first to start their program in the newly constructed Health Sciences Building built adjacent to the Foothills Hospital. The Heritage Medical Research Building was built in November of 1987 with funding made available by the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research.
On June 17, 2014, the Faculty of Medicine was formally renamed the Cumming School of Medicine in recognition of Geoffrey Cumming's generous gift to the university - matched by the Province of Alberta - in support of the school's work in medical research and innovation.
