Wake Forest University Associate Provost for Global Affairs Kline Harrison, Director of Global Abroad Programs Jessica Francis and Assistant Dean of Global Study Away David Taylor were recently selected from a competitive applicant pool to participate in the inaugural Global Senior Leadership Symposium on Dec. 15 and 16. The forum is hosted by EF Education First, the Forum on Education Abroad and the Association of International Education Administrators, in partnership with EF’s educational partner, the Nobel Prize Museum.
The Global Senior Leadership Symposium is a unique opportunity for higher education leaders to collaborate with a global network of peers, explore international strategies from various cultural perspectives and discuss the role of education abroad and global mobility within higher education. Participants will engage in peer learning circles to discuss the future of internationalization and global learning, and they hear from eight Nobel Laureates and other thought leaders throughout the symposium.
“In this moment of unprecedented challenges that face our nation and our world, we at Wake Forest are actively reaffirming our longstanding commitment to international education and the essential role that global understanding—in all of its forms—occupies within our institution,” said Harrison, Francis and Taylor.
