Online registration is now closed for the 2016 Summit. You may register in person at the Summit.
This year’s summit is organized around the theme of “Uncommon Intersections: Cultivating Multiple Perspectives at Home and Abroad.” The theme is intended to bring to bear presentations and resulting discussions around the often less-explored, varied or unique ways that internationalization informs and intersects with higher education. The summit will be primarily focused on research presentations, but will also include various events such as applied workshops, lectures, as well as round-table and panel discussions. While successful proposals will highlight an unexpected, unusual, or overlooked way that internationalization informs what we engage with as an academic community, the summit theme is intended to encourage a conversation about the dynamic of internationalization as related to unique aspects of the internationalization of higher education, Internationalization at Home or internationalization of the curriculum specifically.

All members of the DU community (faculty, staff, administrators, graduate, and undergraduate students) and regional universities are encouraged to participate in the summit.
As a note, after two consecutive years of successful summits within the DU community, we are expanding our scope. This year, we will be opening up the Internationalization Summit to members of our regional academic community, inviting them to submit presentation proposals as well as attend the summit.
