International Education Week 2021

Global Disruption, Global Solutions
November 15-19, 2021

Our second Global Reach, Global Teach virtual conference for International Education Week focuses on the theme of Global Disruption, Global Solutions. Faculty and staff experts, along with Temple students, will come together to discuss critical topics, such as the (hopefully) post-Covid landscape in higher education, the Olympic games, and sustainability and climate change.

With campuses on three continents–Main Campus in North America, Temple Rome in Europe and Temple Japan in Asia–and programs across the globe, Temple University truly has a global reach. Join us in celebrating Temple’s global community and engage in critical discussions about global disruption and ways to move forward together through global solutions.

Welcome from Interim Provost Gregory Mandel
Welcome from Vice President Hai-Lung Dai
