International Education in a New Political Climate

This seminar will explore how the global trend towards nationalism, including the U.K.’s planned departure from the EU and the early actions of the new U.S. administration, will affect the internationalization of higher education.

Offered by World Education Services (WES) and The Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE), this seminar aims to address these questions and provide a space for higher education professionals to discuss implications for their respective institutions.
