COVID-19: The end or revival of international higher education? - Livestream

Recent years have witnessed a rise in the level of nationalism in many countries with tightened immigration policies and stronger governmental oversight of multinational research collaborations. At the same time, competition among countries and universities for international students has increased significantly, while the demographics of young populations in many countries are shifting. Now, the onset of an historic global pandemic, with its serious travel challenges and dramatic economic effects, raises yet another threat to the future of internationalization on U.S. campuses. 

How can universities develop new policies and practices that respond to both problems and opportunities resulting from this unprecedented crisis?

You are invited to hear presentations by three experts in the field of international higher education and join in a discussion of these important topics.  The speakers will be:

  • Rajika Bhandari, President and CEO, IC3 Insitute
  • Hans De Wit, Director of the Center for International Higher Education, Boston College
  • Tim O'Brien, Senior Vice President, INTO University Partnerships
  • Moderator Igor Chirikov, is SERU Consortium Director and CSHI Senior Researcher
