Join Richard Longworth and Randall Dunham for a candid discussion about the future of the Midwest in our increasingly interconnected world – and the role of global public universities and regional collaborations in furthering our standing.

Topics will include the changing face of industry, a re-envisioning of regional economies, and the need for local businesses and governments to foster international perspectives and partnerships.

Part of The Global Public University Series, this program is co-sponsored by UW–Madison Division of International Studies, the Worldwide Universities Network, and the Center for International Business Education and Research. The aim of the series is to promote discussion about the trends, challenges, and opportunities that impact public universities throughout the world and how these institutions can learn from and work with one another, and their communities.
