International Education Forum

The UW-Whitewater International Education Committee, Center for Global Education, and Provost's Office invite you to discuss and plan the future of international education and internationalizing the campus.

The event is Monday, Jan. 13, from 8:30 am - noon in University Center room 275A.

UW-Whitewater has achieved real momentum, with numerous international learning experiences and initiatives, and many involved faculty, staff and students from across campus.  To capitalize on this momentum, we can seek ways to shape activities to become more coherent, interconnected and strategic.

This forum brings together a range of UW-Whitewater stakeholders with an interest in international education to accomplish the following:

  • assess what is now happening at UW-Whitewater
  • learn about national trends and best practice models for international education
  • identify gaps, opportunities and potentials at UW-Whitewater


Interim Provost Mary Pinkerton invites the campus community to visit with her during regular office hours Wednesday, Jan. 8, from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the University Center Commons area.

Scheduling During Chancellor/Provost Transition

Richard Telfer is now serving as interim president at UW System. Beverly Kopper is serving as interim chancellor, and Mary Pinkerton is serving as interim provost for UW-Whitewater. This will necessitate changes in scheduling for spring 2014 events.

  • Please contact Liz Woolever at  262-472-1918  or woolevee@uww.edu to schedule with the interim chancellor, Beverly Kopper.
  • Please contact Kari Heidenreich at 262-472-1099 or HeidenreKA12@uww.edu to schedule with the interim provost, Mary Pinkerton.

Any event already scheduled for the chancellor or provost will remain scheduled on the calendar for that position. The administrator who is in that role at the time of your event will attend and fulfill the role for the event. Please note that scheduling meetings or events should be based on the position, not the individual.


If you have an announcement you'd like included in next week's listing, send your information to news@uww.edu by NOON FRIDAY.

Events are acceptable if they are relevant to a campuswide audience. Meeting notices will not be posted. Marketing and Media Relations reserves the right to edit submissions for content and length.

Please consider adding your event to the UW-Whitewater Master Calendar.
