March 9th, 2021

The following message is from Yashwant Prakash Vyas, assistant director of diversity resources and president of the Alpha Tau Chapter of Phi Beta Delta:


I hope you are well. On behalf of the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and International Programs, I am writing to seek speakers for the Global Education Lecture Series.

The mission of this new initiative is to discuss issues facing international educational interchange, engage in shared scholarship, and to be in community. 1-hour events will be organized virtually via the zoom webinar platform in talk, lecture, or discussion format. We welcome submissions from staff, faculty, graduate students, and administrators from all disciplines who are willing to share on a topic of importance to international educational interchange.  

If you or someone you know is interested in serving as a speaker, please submit this Speaker Form. We will review this form on a rolling basis and work with the speaker to schedule an event.  

Please direct any questions you may have to me at We look forward to receiving your submissions!
