Professor Joseph B. Berger; Department of Educational Policy, Research and Administration; Interim Senior Associate Dean; Director, Center for International Education; presents “Global Challenge in Higher Education Research.”

The Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) Global Challenge in Higher Education and Research (GHEAR) addresses the sources, mechanisms, and social structures that give rise to today's higher education challenges, and works collaboratively across a network of 18 universities on 5 continents to propose reform policies for international research and education.

·         Access - How do educational policies and practices promote equity of opportunity to succeed in university and beyond?

·         Mobility - How does higher education respond to and facilitate greater mobility of people, learning, and knowledge?

·         Investment - How can financial resources be more effective and efficient in promoting access, mobility, quality and relevance in higher education?

Most STEM seminars are held at 4 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month during the academic year in Hasbrouck 138.  Everyone is welcome; no reservations are needed and there is no charge. Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
