We invite members of the DU community and the front range regional academic community (faculty, staff, and students) to submit session proposals and attend this year’s Internationalization Summit at the University of Denver.


The event offers a forum to exchange ideas, experiences, and strategies, while considering the impact of internationalization of higher education in addressing or perpetuating global challenges. For example, how do we move toward solving the challenges of poverty, hunger, clean energy, migrations, environmental sustainability and regeneration, economic prosperity, peace, and a host of inequalities?


The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Dawn Michelle Whitehead, Vice President, Office of Global Citizenship for Campus, Community, and Careers at the American Association of Universities and Colleges. Sessions will highlight action on the local-global continuum as well as everyday work in the university – teaching, research, learning, and working with students and community – that contribute to the internationalization of higher education and intersect with global challenges. Proposals can come from diverse philosophies and perspectives including research-based, theoretical, dialogic, collaborative, practical/applied, experiential and action-oriented.


The priority deadline to submit is Friday, February 24. We will accept later submissions on a rolling basis.
