Internationalizing U.S. Public Higher Education
October 11, 2016 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Guest Speaker: Amy Wan, Associate Professor and Co-Director of First Year Writing, Queens College, CUNY
Respondent: Scott Wible, Associate Professor, Department of English, University of Maryland
“Internationalizing U.S. Public Higher Education” considers what it means to cultivate the “global citizenship” of the student body and how rhetorical education can help manage this foundational shift. By contextualizing discourse about the readiness, language abilities, and sense of belonging of international and multilingual students, this presentation examines the rhetoric of the international student and the global citizen alongside the history of the rhetoric of diversity and access in public higher education.
Co-hosted by the Department of English and the Department of Communication
