On Monday, June 5, NYIT and IIE hosted a summit on Global Education in New York, featuring Allan Goodman as the keynote speaker. An expert panel discussed ways higher education institutions, governments, and philanthropic organizations can respond to the unmet demand for education among the approx. 200,000 displaced university-aged Syrian students.
“The world is currently experiencing the biggest refugee crisis since the end of World War II. Among the millions of people displaced from their homes are those who, under normal circumstances, would be pursuing a university education. That issue, along with identifying ways to help those young people receive an education, was the topic of discussion at “Perspectives on Global Education,” the closing plenary session of NYIT’s first Global Partnership Summit.”
