We hear the term globalization, but what does it mean? For us at the University of Rochester, it carries a sense of possibility and responsibility, of what can happen when students and faculty near and far come together to address matters of global consequence. Climate change, migration, artistic excellence and beyond – these matters extend beyond borders, and each has the potential to affect humankind everywhere. How is globalization going to affect us in the next two decades? This is just one of the questions we asked our esteemed panel.
