WUSC has returned to Indonesia through the Local Leadership in Development Project. It is hoped this project will enable WUSC to re-acquaint with Indonesian development issues to further develop our programming in the country.
WUSC will oversee academic exchanges between Canadian and Indonesian universities. The program will help identify resources and organize scholarship placements and study tours in Canadian universities, colleges and ministries. The ISM team is responsible for administering and monitoring students studying in Canada under scholarship, as well as planning, designing, evaluating, and participating in short term projects and other LLD activities. The exchanges will help strengthen Islamic education networks and Canadian universities with relevant experience in community development.
