ITEP Global Education Forum

Two Aims

The ITEP Global Education Forum (GEF, pronounced "G-E-F") has two aims. First, we focus on identifying the most pressing issues in education globally, as reported by renowned experts from academia, public policy, government and the non-profit sector across the globe. Second, we examine whether and how undergraduate and graduate student education and training should change in order to prepare students to address these issues.

Now a monthly event (during an academic year, as of September 2019), the GEF defines education broadly-including formal, informal, and experiential settings in schools and outside the classroom. We focus on traditional educational topics such as access, equity, and achievement, and also on education as it relates to such global concerns as public health, extremism, and the environment.
