Description: The Global University with Ben Wildavsky
“Will your son or daughter be earning a college degree in Singapore or Qatar in the near future? Higher education journalist and researcher Ben Wildavsky contends that the rising mobility of college students, faculty, and even campuses across national borders is to be embraced, not feared. This often ignored effect of globalization, he says, will bring improved education, economic growth, and new opportunities for people around the world.”
