14th Annual Global Education Forum
The 14th Annual Global Educational Forum is an instrument of diversity in research, teaching, and service across the University of Georgia campus and Athens community, with featured scholars coming within and outside the University sharing the state-of-the art scholarship to inform current human developments in local and global context. While past forums focused on women in science and medicine, Olympics and development, and human health, the 2020 forum centers on sport, development, and community in worldwide communities.
