The Wang Center for Global Education presents public symposia and world conversations on issues critical to intercultural understanding and world peace.
Event participants join scholars, business and government leaders and policy experts for discussions, presentations, banquets and celebrations to understand the world. Annually, participants take part in stimulating conferences that offer multiple points of view and avenues for cross-cultural engagement.
Bringing the world to PLU furthers the university's efforts to educate for a just, healthy, sustainable and peaceful world.
Please join us yearly for global symposia and world conversations events and encourage your co-workers, students, and friends to take part as well.
