First fall Global Studies Roundtable is Friday, Sept. 25, 1 p.m. Public is invited

Please join us Friday, Sept 25 at 1 p.m. (CT) for the first of the Fall Global Studies Roundtable discussions. Margaret Wenger from the Milwaukee-based Educational Credential Evaluators will be speaking on: Taxi Drivers and Doctors: Comparative education and Student Mobility.

“When the student sitting next to you in class (or on the Zoom), or the dentist who filled your cavity came from another country, who decided that they had the appropriate educational background? In many cases, it’s someone who specializes in comparative education. In a globalized, mobile world, more and more people are educated in multiple countries, with different grade, credit, and accreditation practices, as well as different underlying educational philosophies. The speaker, an international credential evaluator, will introduce the field and its applications, and why it matters to everyone, whether you study abroad or not, with a few pointers in spotting fake educational documents.”

The public is invited to this discussion taking place via Microsoft Teams at this link.

Registration is now open for national public summit on preventing sexual harassment in higher education

Registration is now open for the second annual national Public Summit of the Action Collaborative on Preventing Sexual Harassment in Higher Education hosted by the University of Wisconsin System. The summit, scheduled for October 19-20, was originally to be held at UW-Milwaukee but will be taking place virtually this year due to COVID-19.

“The UW System is proud to be at the forefront of addressing this important issue in our society and particularly in higher education,” UW System President Tommy Thompson said. “In order for our students to receive the best possible education, they must feel comfortable and safe in their campus communities.”

The four goals of the Action Collaborative are to:

  • Raise awareness about sexual harassment and how it occurs, the consequences of sexual harassment, and the organizational characteristics and recommended approaches that can prevent it.
  • Share and elevate evidence-based institutional policies and strategies to reduce and prevent sexual harassment.
  • Contribute to setting the research agenda and gather and apply research results across institutions.
  • Develop a standard for measuring progress toward reducing and preventing sexual harassment in higher education.
