Across the United States, the growing presence of students and scholars from East, Southeast, and South Asia has become an important feature of the academic landscape. A logical outcome of our shrinking world, heralded as promoting values of diversity, tolerance, and global understanding, this trend that greatly enriches our intellectual and social environment also has created new challenges. An upcoming workshop at the UI will bring together 50 Chinese and U.S. undergraduate students to address key issues arising in this changing educational environment and produce recommendations for the campus community.
The all–day workshop will be held Saturday, February 22, 2014, at the Adler Journalism Building on the UI campus. More information and a full schedule of speakers and panels can be found at http://international.uiowa.edu/caps/lectures-and-events#global-leadership. Observers are welcome to attend this event.
