Provosts Summit at NAFSA 2017

 

Learn more about the Presidents and Provosts Summit at NAFSA 2018 in Philadelphia, PA.

May 31-June 1, 2017 | Los Angeles, California

Participants at the NAFSA Provosts Summit 2017 explored the evolving challenges of leadership in a time of political and cultural uncertainty. Colleges and universities have made significant strides in preparing all students to thrive in a complex and interconnected world. However, many of the foundations of international education and global learning have been under attack. During the Provost Summit, participants worked with peers to identify the most pressing global issues they face on campus and heard from noted thought leaders from the academy and the international relations world to help them imagine strategies for successfully meeting these challenges.
