- Explore the U.K. higher education system in a changing political context through meetings with experts;
- Spend a day on the U.K. campus to learn how international activities are managed, exchange good practices, and discuss possible collaborations;
- Create an ongoing community of practice by engaging with U.K. and U.S. colleagues and ACE staff before, during, and after the program.
Dr. Pallatto-Fontaine was selected through a competitive application process.
