UW-Madison’s Global Studies in Higher Education (GSHE) is a collaborative venture of Global Studies, the Department of Educational Policy Studies, and the Division of International Studies — the initiative is pleased to announce the return of the GSHE Distinguished Speaker Series on October 3, 2011.
Established to examine the evolving role of a public research university, GSHE operates as an interdisciplinary hub of university administrators, scholars, researchers, and students, and of partners and leaders outside the university. It contributes to UW–Madison’s strengths by considering global change and local impacts in comparative perspective and by creating a forum where participants meet, cross-fertilize, discuss solutions, and generate new intellectual resources and wealth.
The project is led by Amy Stambach, associate dean of the Division of International Studies and professor of Educational Policy Studies, and Gilles Bousquet, vice provost for globalization and dean of the Division of International Studies. Besides the Distinguished Speaker Series, GSHE also offers opportunities for faculty, staff, and students to engage in discussion of global higher education through a reading group and the International and Comparative Education Research Group (ICERG), which both meet monthly. For more information about the spring speakers, activities, and courses related to GSHE, please visit the project websitegshe.international.wisc.edu
