Laura Hills helps you stay in touch over the summer break
Although things may now be quieter on the teaching front, there are still a few events and conferences coming up over the summer.
Thursday 18 July
2:00 pm ET
The first event on the horizon is an Inside Higher Ed webinar on recruiting international graduate students in a challenging environment. Although its focus is principally on the issues facing American universities amidst the current cooling of the US-China relationship, it could still be relevant to institutions not based in the United States.
