A global vision

Like many higher education institutions around the country, MU will celebrate International Education Nov. 13 to 20. The event, sponsored by the U.S. departments of education and state promotes programs that prepare American for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study in the United States.

Activities at Mizzou will include a film, lectures, a study abroad photo contest and a seminar and legal clinic on immigration for postdoctoral fellows. One highlight of the week will be the latest in a series of the Chancellor’s Global Issues Forum from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Nov. 19 in Chamber Auditorium of the new MU Student Center.

At the forum, four Mizzou faculty members who have received Fulbright grants — Denice Adkins, David O’Brien, Brick Johnstone and Michael Urban — will discuss their experience abroad and describe the impact it has had on their work at MU.
