The Academy faculty are Pia Wood (University of Tennessee, Knoxville), Penelope Pynes (University of North Carolina, Greensboro), Riall Nolan (Purdue University), and Harvey Charles (University at Albany, State University of New York). Additional speakers will include Darla Deardorff (AIEA). Each faculty member will chair two topical sessions, but all will comment on each topic. There will also be three sessions set aside for presentations and small group discussions among the participants to apply the knowledge to their own contexts. Through the Academy, participants will gain valuable knowledge and insights into how to lead comprehensive internationalization at their institutions.
Participants will be asked to arrive on Monday afternoon, April 29 in time for an opening dinner at the Kings Daughter’s Inn. The following Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will feature two working sessions each morning and two in the afternoon. Breakfasts and lunches are provided. No dinners are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. There will be a closing dinner on Thursday night at a leading restaurant in downtown Durham. Friday morning will feature a session for presentations by participants and the awarding of certificates of completion, after which people will be free
