The campus is hosting two workshops on April 30 and May 1 prior to the annual meeting of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) in New York City.
The workshop “The Role of Heritage in Migration and Displacement” is being chaired by Elizabeth Chilton, associate vice chancellor for research and engagement and professor of anthropology, and Elizabeth Brabec, professor of landscape architecture and regional planning.
The workshop is part of a three-day symposium, where UWN members and other scholars will present their current research. The goal of the workshop is to develop the agenda and theme of heritage in the context of the WUN Understanding Cultures (UC) Global Challenge Group, which is coordinated by Chilton. The second day of the symposium will focus on a discussion of the group assembled as to how to refine the theme of heritage within the WUN agenda and the UC Group in particular. Day three is an invitation-only meeting.
The second workshop, set for May 1, is on “Sustainable Development Goals for Higher Education” and will be chaired by Joseph B. Berger, interim senior associate dean of the College of Education and professor of educational policy, research and administration (EPRA).
Along with Berger, scheduled presenters include professor Sangeeta Kamat and associate professor Ryan Wells and Jacqueline Mosselson of EPRA, and Ximena Zúñiga, professor of student development.
Registration for the campus sessions is open through April 14.
