Coady International Institute - St. FX Unv
Named in honour of Rev. Dr. Moses Coady, the Coady International Institute represents St Francis Xavier University's commitment to social justice - in action. Unique in North America, the Coady Institute has been educating and training development professionals from around the world since 1959. Over 4,500 men and women from more than 130 countries have graduated from the Coady's campus-based programs. They come to the Coady to share experiences and learn innovative and practical ways of working with their own communities to improve their social and economic well being through active citizenship and co-operation. Their work in areas such as health, education, environment, micro-enterprise, and human rights is helping millions of people to build brighter futures for themselves.
Coady currently offers a five-month Diploma in Community-Based Development and nine three-week certificates, including three newly launched certificates in Youth Leadership for Development, Asset-Based Approaches to Community Development and Community-Based Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding.
Since 1997, the Coady has provided over 100 recent Canadian university and college graduates with the opportunity to participate in a six-month work internship with global partners in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and South America. Not only does the internship experience improve graduates' job prospects when they return to Canada, but it also gives them an opportunity to understand their role as global citizens.
Through our Global Partnerships Program, the Coady is also working on-the-ground with development organizations around the world to help them strengthen their ability to educate and train local development workers.See http://www.coady.stfx.ca/
