Faculty have historically participated in international networks of knowledge transmission, but 21st century universities, among them NYU, are only beginning to imagine themselves as globalized institutions, establishing worldwide presences with sites in more than one country. This two-day conference will explore issues related to Higher Education in the Global Age, with leaders of universities from around the world speaking on four panels: Emerging Educational Markets, Universities as Agents of Global Understanding, Universities as Global Networks, and Universities as Engines of Sustainability.
