A message from Carolyn Russell, AVP, International Education

I wanted to take a moment to offer my wholehearted support and encouragement to all students with ties to India during these challenging times. We understand that you are facing unique and difficult circumstances, and we want you to know that you are not alone. 

Your resilience and determination in pursuing your education despite the obstacles you may be encountering are truly commendable. We are here to support you in any way we can, whether it’s aiding with your academic needs, offering a listening ear or connecting you with resources to navigate these trying times. 

As a student of VIU, remember that your well-being is our top priority and we are committed to creating an inclusive environment where you can thrive. Our International Student Services team is here to support you.   

VIU aims to ensure a positive and supportive experience for all students studying at VIU. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you need assistance or simply someone to talk to. 

You are an essential part of our community, and we stand with you as you continue your educational journey. Your strength and perseverance inspire us all.
