Global Strategy and International Presence Working Group

This working group is composed of experienced individuals from many fields both within and outside the university in order to obtain a variety of views on the broader issues involved in internationalization. The group will consider the future of higher education on a global scale and how CWRU can both react to larger factors and lead in this area. In addition, this working group will look at where CWRU should establish a focused university presence (as opposed to individual school, department or faculty member presence) abroad.
