Featured Faculty Opportunity: Global Conference

This summer, JSU joined the International Studies Consortium of Georgia (ISCOG), a group of 18 colleges and universities in the Southeast dedicated to developing, coordinating, and implementing international education and foreign language projects on behalf of member institutions. The main objective of the ISCOG is to provide domestic and overseas professional and curriculum development opportunities to faculty members (and students) at member and participating schools so that young people can acquire global and area studies competency skills to adapt and succeed in a dynamic and highly interdependent global economy.

The ISCOG hosts a number of programs in both fall and spring semesters. This week (Sept. 15 and Sept. 16), the consortium is hosting two virtual events open to all JSU faculty, staff, and students. We invite you to join us for one or both events.

Thurs., Sept. 15 (1-2:30pm CT): Virtual Visiting Diplomat Program. Click here to register.

This event gives students and faculty members opportunities to hear from and speak with the Consul General of Belgium in Atlanta, Michael Gerebtzoff.

Friday, Sept. 16 (7:30am-3:00pm CT): Virtual Conference on Critical Global Resources, Changing World Order, and International Relations and Trade. Click here to register.

This teaching-focused, interdisciplinary workshop for non-specialists offers attendees (JSU faculty, staff, and students) opportunities to learn from experts at Indiana University and UIPUI about energy justice and equity, the geopolitical consequences of raw material production, and the future of farming in a changing global climate and context. (The conference includes four sessions, but you are welcome to join only the sessions that most interest you or work with your schedule.)
