General Information Information on the Colloquium, Washington & Lee and the City of Lexington

Understanding the Challenges in Global Education

President John Kennedy used the slogan New Frontier to help explain his collection of new policies and goals during his tenure as President of the United States. Humanists in the twenty-first century seek to further define the slogan as challenges confronting societies in a newly-formed global community

As a result, we propose that a colloquium on New Frontiers in Global Education be held on the campus of Washington and Lee University to discuss these challenges and opportunities in the realm of education in a world setting.  The gathering will be on Friday and Saturday, March 23 and 24, 2018

We invite you to attend as we discover what has yet to come and the likelihood of what will be.

Register to let us know that you will be attending. There is no fee as The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is supplying necessary funding for the two-day activity.

Please feel free to contact either of us should you require additional information about submitting a proposal or registering to attend.
