The objective of the event, which was set up by the Canadian-American Studies Center, was to encourage students and faculty to study Québec and study in Québec.
"Quebec Week” also coincided with the presence of visiting professor Thomas Collombat from the Université du Québec en Outaouais, who is working at the Canadian-American Studies Center thanks to a grant from the Québec/United States University Grant Program that was awarded to him by the Ministère des Relations Internationales.
The Québec Government Office in Los Angeles was specially invited to give a presentation on Québec in three university courses:
- French and Quebec Culture
- Nationalism in French Canada
- Labor in North America: A Quebec Perspective (Visiting Professor from Québec)
Finally, representatives from the Québec Government Office in Los Angeles met with the Provost of WWU, the Vice President of University Relations and the Director of the Center for International Studies in order to plan future joint initiatives between the university and Québec institutions.
