The Global: Implications for Research and the Curriculum

My colleague at Brandeis University sent a very interesting posts to several NAFSA network discussions forums and I thought readers might find the links very interesting in their campus internationalization efforts and/or research efforts in this area. Following is a cut and past summary of his post:

Last April, Brandeis University hosted a symposium called "The Global: Implications for Research and the Curriculum," geared for faculty across Brandeis’ schools. The symposium was a two-day conversation on the international dimensions of higher education.

A brief report on the symposium is available for download at:
