15th Annual Lone Star College International Education Conference

Call for Proposals

Call for Posters

Date: April 20, 2018

Location: 5000 Research Forest Drive, The Woodlands, Texas 77381

Conference Theme: Globalization in Higher Education

Globalization initiatives in higher education seek to prepare students for citizenship as professionals in the international arena. Critical fields such as education, law, business, health care, and engineering recognize the need to explore solutions that traverse lines of geography. Higher education institutions promote globalization through study abroad programs and through the recruitment of international students who nurture global cultures on their campuses. Programs such as the Model UN also afford students the opportunity to collaborate with peers from different countries to conceptualize and debate solutions to social, political, and environmental issues.

The 15th Annual Lone Star College International Education Conference seeks proposals that spotlight globalization initiatives at higher education institutions in South East Texas, especially through means such as international education programs. The conference also welcomes proposals that explore how higher education institutions in South East Texas have adapted to challenges (e.g., funding, legislation, and environment) that have affected their international education programs and their international student populations.
