U.S. Secretary of Labor R. Alexander Acosta will headline the closing session at the APLU Annual Meeting that will feature the release and discussion of a new APLU report, Ready for Jobs, Career, and a Lifetime: Public Research Universities and Credentials that Count. Those who are not attending other APLU Annual Meeting sessions, but would like to attend the final session on job and career preparedness (at no cost) are asked to RSVP.
APLU and the Association of American Universities, in partnership with VentureWell and the National Academy of Inventors, are hosting the inaugural University Innovation and Entrepreneurship Showcase, featuring an exhibition and reception spotlighting startups from across the country that have resulted from federally funded, university-based research.
In recognition of their extraordinary global engagement efforts, APLU named the University of Calgary; Michigan State University; Queen’s University; and the University of Washington finalists for its Institutional Award for Global Learning, Research & Engagement. The award recognizes institutions at the leading edge of inclusive and comprehensive efforts to internationalize their campuses. The winner will be announced during the 2017 APLU Annual Meeting November 12-14 in Washington, DC. In this third in a four-part series, APLU spotlights Queen’s University for its efforts to deepen global learning, research, and engagement.
