The Center for International Education, International Studies Symposium Series, presents “Higher Education as an Agent for Change in the Developing World,” presented by Tom Oates, inaugural director of the Webster University program in Ghana, takes place Tuesday, Nov. 20, noon – 1:20 p.m. in the Emerson Library Conference Room.

In the world of international aid to developing nations, the power and results that emerge from opening access to higher education is consistently underestimated. The transformational power of education not only touches the student but their family and, at times, an entire community.

Providing access to education to people from socially and economically deprived backgrounds grows a new generation of professionals with a global perspective and a keen appreciation for social justice.
