University of Iowa tenured, tenure-track, clinical, and research faculty are invited to submit proposals for the Provost’s Global Forum, the premier annual event on campus focused on international and global issues. The deadline for proposal submissions is April 1.

The forum brings together experts from the faculty and leading voices from a variety of areas (business, technology, education, politics, and civil society, including projects focused on the environment, human rights, development, citizen diplomacy) to raise awareness about and contribute to debate on the foremost issues in globalization that face the world today.

The winning proposal will be awarded up to $20,000. Organizers may choose to use the funds to bring multiple speakers to campus, or they may focus on one or two high-profile speakers. Past winning proposals include “Women’s Health and the Environment: Going Up in Smoke” and “The Nation, the State, and the Global Redefinition of Self-Determination.”

The forum is made possible through the generous support of the Stanley-UI Foundation Support Organization.
