In spite of a more interconnected world, a growing movement toward nationalism is gaining ground in many areas of the world. Bernie Burrola, vice president of Office for International, Community and Economic Engagement at the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, will explore how we got here and why the world needs greater engagement/integration and not less.
Burrola is the ninth speaker in the Commitment to Internationalization Lecture Series, continuing our conversation about the UI's vision and strategic themes for campus internationalization. His talk, "Combatting Nationalism: Why the World Needs More Internationalization," will take place on Nov. 17, 2022, from 3:30 to 5 p.m., in Room 1117 of the University Capitol Centre.
