Education and Social Transformation topic of April 11 WorldCanvass

The 2019 Provost’s Global Forum, “Why School? International Perspectives on Education and Social Transformation” (April 11-13), will examine education in a global context, both as a reflection of social norms and as a powerful force for change. We kick off the symposium on April 11 with WorldCanvass, when host Joan Kjaer and an expert panel discuss the societal roles played by educational institutions here and abroad. WorldCanvass is a free, public event at MERGE, 136 South Dubuque Street. The program begins at 5:30 p.m., with a pre-show reception from 5-5:30 p.m.
