APLU will host a free workshop on campus-wide advising redesign ahead of its 2017 annual meeting in Washington, DC. The workshop, Launching Campus-Wide Advising Redesign, will be held Saturday, November 11 1:00 to 5:00pm (EST) at the Marriott Wardman Park, where the APLU Annual Meeting is being held.
APLU’s Council on Research (CoR), which is comprised of senior research officers at the nation’s public research universities, has named eight individuals to its inaugural class of CoR Research Leader Fellows. The fellowship enables individuals who aspire to become vice presidents, vice provosts, or vice chancellors of research to develop critical new knowledge and skills essential to research support and competitiveness. The fellows were selected earlier this summer and introduced at the 2017 CoR Summer Meeting in Reno, Nevada.
During a panel at last month’s Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium, where the World Food Prize is presented, members of APLU’s Challenge of Change Commission addressed the conference on how to tackle the challenge of achieving global food and nutrition security.
In recognition of their extraordinary global engagement efforts, APLU named the University of Calgary; Michigan State University; Queen’s University; and the University of Washington finalists for its Institutional Award for Global Learning, Research & Engagement. The award recognizes institutions at the leading edge of inclusive and comprehensive efforts to internationalize their campuses. The winner will be announced during the 2017 APLU Annual Meeting November 12-14 in Washington, DC. In this first in a four-part series, APLU spotlights the University of Calgary for its efforts to deepen global learning, research, and engagement.
