Presented at G.I.V.E. - The Global Institute for core Values and Education
Spring Symposium: March 18-19, 2019
The crisis of Europe without borders: The re-questioning of Schengen and its consequences for European border regions
This symposium is funded by the EU Commission and is a Jean Monnet project.
As an integral part of the semester abroad, students will participate in an international symposium. The symposium is presented at G.I.V.E. - The Global Institute for core Values and Education - located at the Château de Pourtalès in Strasbourg, France.
Over the course of two days, they will interact with other students, take part in panel discussions, and listen to different presentations on interesting topics from European professors, business leaders, politicians, and academics.
This is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about Europe, to broaden their perspectives on important cross-cultural and crossborder topics, and to foster cultural understanding and communication skills during their semester abroad.
There is no additional cost for the trip or the symposium since it is already included in the semester program fees.
