Mobilizing the university community to increase international mobility

The project focuses on resolving systemic obstacles to mobility from 3 distinct angles: 1) training a group of “force multipliers” in intercultural skills to act as channels of influence and openness to the international community in their interactions with colleagues and students; 2) training trainers with a mission to facilitate intercultural development throughout our university community; and 3) updating the risk management program for travel abroad, which will serve as the basis for targeted training programs before departure and during mobility. These measures have brought new energy to multiple levels of our organizational structure to achieve greater international engagement and mobility.
