My University of Chicago colleague Erika Mercer and I will be presenting on this topic at the upcoming NAFSA: Association of International Educators conference in Los Angeles on May 28th at 9:15am. Actually, Erika and I will be doing brief introductions to the topic and then moderating what we hope will be a lively discussion on this topic for the remainder of the session. We will be basing our discussion off the excellent document that Erika prepared for the session which you can download here.
Erika has previously posted to IHEC Blog as a guest blogger and you can access her post entitled “Unintended Consequences of Internationalization” here.
While I'm on the topic of Citizen Diplomats...if you haven't already taken 30 seconds to sign the Global Citizen Diplomacy Initiative petition to President Obama please visit here. The Global Citizen Diplomacy Initiative is a project of The U.S. Center for Citizen Diplomacy.
