A new collaboration by the University of Iowa Division of Diversity Equity and Inclusion and International Programs is focusing on the value of international education.

“The mission of the new Global Education Lecture Series is to discuss issues facing international educational interchange, engage in shared scholarship, and to be in community,” said the program’s creator Yashwant Prakash Vyas in an email to The Daily Iowan. Vyas is the assistant director of Diversity Resources for the UI’s DEI division.

The initiative kicked off last month with an inaugural lecture given by Associate Provost and Dean of International Programs Russell Ganim.
