Ten faculty from the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) have been selected to form the newest cohort of the ACES Academy for Global Engagement (Global Academy).
This year’s Academy program will explore academic partnerships for ACES in Cuba with the University of Havana, Agrarian University of Havana, and University of Pinar del Rio. A capstone immersion visit to Cuba is projected for Spring 2017.
The Global Academy training program promotes greater internationalization of the College by providing a platform and support to ACES faculty who wish to further their global research through meaningful and targeted international partnerships.
The 2016-17 ACES Academy for Global Engagement
Participating in the Global Academy requires an academic year commitment to the program, which focuses on global activities at the college, campus, and national levels, and culminates with an international immersion experience.
Senior fellows are Academy alumni and senior faculty who provide expertise and mentoring to new fellows.
