Within the last two weeks, I have had the pleasure of interacting with multiple groupings of individuals who have or will participate in the Preparing the Future Professoriate: Global Perspectives program. The initial meeting of the 2012 Global Perspectives group was held and we began the process of preparing for our May visit. The PFP Chile ’12 group met to debrief and reflect upon our January visit to Chile. The weekly Global Perspectives lunch gathering was held and I was able to attend. And most recently, I shared the draft itinerary with my colleagues who will participate in the first ever Global Perspectives program for graduate deans this July. The pervasive sentiment across these groups is genuine excitement about learning more about the global academic world and reflecting about the significant impact upon one’s professional and personal lives. The global perspectives program is one of the many ways through which we can and will transform graduate education.
