In honour of Dr. Guangwei Ouyang’s 25 years of service to the Douglas College community, his friends and colleagues have established a scholarship in his name. Join us in recognizing his important contributions to international education.
Dr. Guangwei Ouyang worked at Douglas College for over 25 years, before he retired in June 2021. He served as a faculty member in the Department of Philosophy in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and held several leadership roles at the College before becoming Vice President, International Education and Strategic Partnerships in 2002.
Guangwei was born in Shanghai, China, and received his BA in Philosophy at Nanjing University and his MA at Fudan University. He then came to North America to continue his education and graduated with a second MA and a PhD from the University of Alberta. His deeply personal experiences with international education played a pivotal role in how he enhanced Douglas’s international program.
In 2020, Guangwei was given the annual International Education Lifetime Achievement Award by the British Columbia Council for International Education. The award recognizes individuals whose long-term commitment to international education in B.C. have had far-reaching impacts. Guangwei received the award for his role in enhancing Douglas’s international program over the span of his career at the College, which started with his negotiation of the first-of-its-kind joint degree program between Douglas College and Shanghai University of International Business and Economics.
The Dr. Guangwei Ouyang International Education Entrance Award recognizes and recruits international students based on academic performance and their capabilities to contribute to the internationalization of Douglas College.
Your gift to the Dr. Guangwei Ouyang International Education Entrance Scholarship will honour Guangwei’s legacy by supporting international education and the College’s vision to graduate resilient global citizens.
