Welcome to the International Relations Office (IRO) at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The mandate of the IRO is to promote, support and coordinate all facets of internationalization on the UNBF campus. The IRO has primary responsibility for defining and coordinating campus-wide internationalization initiatives, and advisory responsibility to academic units and service providers on campus as well as to UNB International and its bi-campus units (such as the International Recruitment Centre).
Most activities that further internationalization on our campus are undertaken by individual academic and service units, and by individual students, faculty and staff. The role of the IRO is to evaluate, facilitate and support these efforts, and to ensure that they are consistent with UNBF policies and strategies.

UNB in Malawi
A new university in Malawi has benefited from a cooperation agreement with the
of New Brunswick to modernize its property surveying system.
The focus of the exchange has taken place at Mzuzu University, an institution newly
founded in 1999 and located a four hour’s drive from the national capital of Lilongwe. Under the direction of Professor John McEvoy of UNB Law and the UNB Centre
for Property Studies, the project involves UNB student interns Erin Riley (LLB III)
and Robert Kingdon (M. Sc. in Geodesy and Geomatics).
The students have begun a twelve week internship experience – Erin Riley is working on a housing and governance project in cooperation with the Department of Land
Management at Mzuzu University. She is meeting with governmental and non-governmental
officials, as well as local residents, to develop a report focusing on identifying the
best practices in land management as well as identifying initiatives to empower the
voices of poor women in relation to housing issues. She will prepare her report as a
comparative study of three local cities and, based on her report, give a Departmental
seminar and presentation to local municipal officials.
