The 3rd Annual Utah International Higher Education Summit will take place on November 9, 2012. This year the Summit is hosted by Salt Lake Community College, Redwood Campus (Student Center). The theme is ‘International Collaboration,’ and the keynote speaker will be Susan Buck Sutton.
The goal for this year’s Summit is to acknowledge and celebrate international collaborations Utah colleges and universities are engaged in, such as institutional collaborations as well as global business collaborations. Opportunities for exploring creative and newly developed international collaborations will also be provided. Dr. Sutton’s experience leading and advancing international efforts via a philosophy of international dialogue and collaboration will be shared during the keynote address, allowing participants to gain a greater understanding of this year’s theme.
Utah higher education leaders, legislators, K-12 leaders, Board of Regents members and community business partners have all been invited to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to network, enjoy world music, and browse poster displays. For a second year in a row, a poster presentation will be part of the Summit’s agenda, providing opportunities to faculty, staff and students from the various higher education institutions to showcase the many ways each is involved in international collaboration.
Unique to this year’s Summit is the joint luncheon with participants of the Undergraduate Philosophy Conference being held at the same time; both of these events are being hosted by Salt Lake Community College. During lunch, the keynote speaker of the philosophy conference will be addressing the audience, and there will be a special presentation by Sundance.
In the afternoon, various types of collaborations will be discussed, with several speakers taking part. The Summit will end with a reception, held in the Oak Room of the Student Center, Redwood Campus.
