Join two experts on the internationalization of higher education for a candid discussion about how local communities and regions benefit from the global efforts of their public universities. Topics will include knowledge hubs and economic development, strategic university-community partnerships, and institutional cooperation, among others.

Co-sponsored by the UW–Madison Division of International Studies, WISCAPE, and the Worldwide Universities Network, the Global Public University Series promotes discussion about the trends, challenges, and opportunities that impact public universities throughout the world and how these institutions can learn from and work with each other.
