Globalization and Higher Education - Dartmouth College Special Session


Dartmouth College, in consultation with the Salzburg Seminar's Universities Project, is coordinating a series of conferences that will examine the impact of globalization on the university by bringing together high-level administrators and faculty from select institutions. The goal of the conference series is to create a White Paper that can help guide university decision-makers as they begin incorporating globalization issues into their institutions' mission, curriculum, infrastructure, and research. An initial planning meeting was held at Schloss Leopoldskron in August 1999. As a result, Dartmouth College has invited leading American institutions to two conferences in November 2000 and March 2001 in Hanover, New Hampshire, that will examine the topic of globalization by framing the key issues and by pointing to possible strategies for addressing them. At the June 2001 meeting in Salzburg, the resulting draft document will be reviewed by international representatives to better fit the global academic community. The final White Paper will be distributed internationally as the basis for a continued dialogue with the larger academic community. Participation at this special session is by invitation only.
