At McMaster, the Forward With Integrity Mandate speaks to the importance of internationalization as a strategy to foster global citizenship, pedagogical partnerships, and opportunities for research and education, constituting an important direction that informs many of McMaster’s teaching and research cultures.
Please join us for an engaging panel discussion that will explore the pressures and tensions that nationalism and internationalism currently present to institutions of higher education more broadly. This panel will provide important insights into how nationalism and internationalism are increasingly influencing the work, function, and mission of universities while at the same time providing critical opportunities for engagement on local and global scales.
