Dear friends, partners, & colleagues -
I am excited to present the first Global Education & Training newsletter! On a quarterly basis, we will share information about:
GET's mission is to provide a gateway to expertise at Illinois for partners around the world through high-quality training programs. There are many positive stories to share about how we fulfill that mission. Since 2015, we have hosted participants from over 20 countries. Hundreds of international students join our annual summer school programs. Fortune Global 500 companies send their C-suite and mid-level executives to train at Illinois.
In short, we are connecting Illinois to the world through exchanges of education, knowledge, and friendship.
GET is building on our past legacy and looking to the future. While sustaining strong connections with corporate and university partners in China, we have established new relationships in countries like Saudi Arabia, Colombia, and South Korea. We continue to deliver high-quality training to executives, while growing GET's offerings to students at the graduate, undergraduate, and pre-college levels. And we have expanded our collaborations with colleagues at Illinois, working to support the interests in global education and training of colleges, schools, and departments across campus.
You will find more information about these initiatives in this and future periodic newsletters, and on an ongoing basis through GET's social media.
My colleagues and I remain open to new ideas and opportunities for cooperation that will enable us to share cutting edge expertise at Illinois with a diverse global audience. Whether you are...
- an Illinois professor, seeking to reach practitioners in your field
- an international student, with the dream of studying abroad at a top U.S. university
- a member of the Illinois community, wanting to connect with our visitors
- an alum of a past GET program, hoping to help others benefit from an experience similar to your own
We welcome your inquiries and suggestions! And, as always, we are grateful for your continued support of GET.
Dr. Matt Rosenstein, GET Director
