Higher Education Symposium: Experts for Table Sessions wanted!
At every university and college, there are people trying to break down barriers to education. People who remove stumbling blocks for young people without an educated family background, for working students or for young parents, and who thus contribute to reducing the drop-out rate.
We are looking for examples such as the alumna who set up a mentoring network with an online platform for those beginning their studies. Or the professor who trains teachers in awakening interest in girls for STEM subjects. Or the director of studies in whose orientation courses all first-year students look beyond the technical boundaries of their own studies
Let us know about such colleagues, because we want to invite some of them to the Alpbach Higher Education Symposium, so that they can talk about their engagement at our table sessions.
