In our era of global challenges, we know that it’s never been more critical to apply our collective knowledge for the public good. Join the University of Oregon for a reception featuring Dr. Aneesh Aneesh, Executive Director of the new School of Global Studies and Languages, to learn how UO is preparing students to be our contribution to the global public good.
On Wednesday, March 22, 5:30-7:00 p.m. at the J. Scott Cellars on 5th Tasting Room, Dr. Aneesh will present on how the School of Global Studies and Languages (GSL) will provide graduates with the skills necessary for a robust career in the global sector. He will also share how GSL is a unique experiment: While there exist many schools of international studies, there are few that take the question of language seriously. In a rapidly expanding world society, cultures talk in multiple tongues. And each language opens up the world in a different way. Whether our students seek employment in foreign service, international organizations, think tanks, or global businesses, they will bring multilayered, plural understandings of the issues with their ability to analyze emerging problems from the horizon of more than one language.
This reception is part of our Oregon Effect Series, an outreach initiative letting folks around the state know what University of Oregon is doing to improve the lives of everyday Oregonians--and citizens of the globe--by bringing UO experts into the community for small-group discussions.
