Symposium Snapshot

Global Town Hall

Join us throughout the academic year for virtual events and initiatives featured during the McDonnell International Symposium.

Symposium Snapshot will foster and feature international and interdisciplinary collaborations and conversations focused on Hope in a Time of Uncertainty.

The first event of the McDonnell International Symposium was the Global Town Hall featuring experts across disciplines and countries as they shared which societal problem has them most concerned and what gives them hope for the future. View the entire session at 8th McDonnell International Symposium.


Given the scope and impact of our global challenges, collaborative work involving faculty across countries is key, as is the work of faculty from many different disciplines. In addition to the Global Town Hall, throughout the fall the McDonnell Academy will host various virtual workshops and panel discussions with colleagues from our partner universities. Register for continuing virtual workshops from the Symposium.
