This session will draw substantive, analytical, and critical links between the wide spectrum of serious thinking about globalization and the practice of global education.

  • Facilitating International Research Collaboration

The cutting edge research performed at higher education institutions around the world is vital to solving global issues such as climate change, sustainable development, food security, and the expansion of the world’s urban populations.
