Multilingual staff help students and parents feel comfortable and connected
Language and culture shouldn’t be barriers to a high quality education for students or to effective communication with parents. Many of Columbia’s liaison and admissions staff come from outside Canada and are fluent in some of the languages frequently spoken by our students and their families. This makes these staff members very helpful to students during their transition to life at Columbia and to families who need to connect with the school. Students can use Columbia’s multilingual staff to guide them to the correct department when they have questions or concerns and to provide translation services when students need to communicate with English-speaking school departments. Parents can contact these multilingual resources by telephone or email whenever they have questions, concerns or are looking for an update on their child’s progress and well-being.
