The Office of Global Engagement is now accepting nominations for the 2019-20 Global Engagement Institute. The annual program provides professional development, support, and consultation for faculty and staff interested in developing research, scholarship or academic programs with an international focus.
Each year, the Office of Global Engagement selects a cohort of 12 faculty and staff members to participate in professional development activities based on a particular world region or university network. This year, the focus of the program is expanding collaborations through the University Global Partnership Network (UGPN).
The UGPN is comprised of four universities – NC State, the University of São Paulo, Brazil, the University of Surrey, U.K. and the University of Wollongong, Australia – and aims to develop sustainable world-class research, education and knowledge transfer through an active international network of selected universities collaborating in research, learning and teaching to benefit global society.
Programming will include workshops, seminars, expert consultation and culminate with the UGPN annual conference hosted by the University of Wollongong in Australia on March 30 to April 1, 2020.
View details and this year’s call for nominations for the Global Engagement Institute. The deadline for nominations is September 27.
