In this presentation, Grace Taneri, Research Scholar from Cyprus and Resident at the UC Berkeley Center for Studies on Higher Education, will discuss ongoing debates about academic freedom in Asia and the Middle East, as well as value protection in Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) of the West (i.e. North America and Western Europe). Some Western universities are concerned about risks to their reputation should they engage in joint projects with universities and governments in these regions. Yet many have proceeded with various globalization efforts, such as launching new universities, liberal arts colleges (LACs), branch campuses, alliances, or research and teaching partnerships. Join us for questions for debate, lessons to be taken away, and the possibility of making the globalization efforts success stories. Lunch will be served. This event is presented in partnership with the Center for Studies in Higher Education (CSHE).
