Internationalization Summit: Save the Date and Call for Proposals


We invite members of DU and the front-range regional academic community (faculty, staff, and students) to submit session proposals and attend this year’s Internationalization Summit. This event provides the university community, regional university colleagues, and international partners with a forum to exchange ideas, experiences, and strategies while considering the impact of the internationalization of higher education in addressing or perpetuating global challenges. How do we move toward solving the challenges of poverty, hunger, clean energy, migrations, environmental sustainability and regeneration, economic prosperity, peace, and a host of inequalities? Sessions will highlight action on the local-global continuum as well as everyday work in the university – teaching, research, learning, and working with students and community – that contribute to the internationalization of higher education and intersect with global challenges. Proposals can come from diverse philosophies and perspectives including research-based, theoretical, dialogic, collaborative, practical/applied, experiential, and action-oriented. The priority deadline to submit is Feb. 24 though we will accept later submissions on a rolling basis. Submit your proposal here

Sevde, a Ph.D. student at Korbel School from Turkey, is reaching out to everyone about the crisis in Turkey. As you may have heard, Turkey experienced one of the biggest earthquakes, which devastated tens of thousands of people. Sevde has direct connections from Turkey as family and friends are there, and it seems thousands of buildings collapsed, and many more people died or are currently under rubble. The winter is making the situation even more difficult. Hundreds of thousands of people are on the streets without power, food, and shelter in winter.
