Provost's Global Forum -- call for proposals

The Provost’s Global Forum is the premier annual event on campus focused on international and global issues.

In addition to serving the University of Iowa community broadly, the Forum endeavors to build connections between the University and the state of Iowa, and positions the UI as a national node in discussions of global affairs.
