NEW BOOK from the Foreign Policy Association Centennial Series Edited by Noel V. Lateef, President and Chief Executive Officer, Foreign Policy Association
Presidents of prominent U.S. universities offer their plans to better prepare students for living and working in a globalized world. These educators assess their contributions to ensuring better-educated approaches to new world challenges and to strengthening the next generation’s international understanding.
Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California, exhorts faculty to “teach for California, research for the world.” Lee Bollinger, president of Columbia University, details “Columbia’s approach to internationalization.” Richard Levin, president of Yale University, scrutinizes connections between “the American university and the global agenda” and the potential of such links.
The 21 contributors to this collection bring a stunning array of expertise and vision to questions of how U.S. higher education can meet demands of globalization.
