On July 22, 2012 the Tour de Academe (Graduate Deans’ Global Perspectives Program) begins in Paris just as the Tour de France ends. The cyclists will ride along the Champs-Élysées to finish Stage 20. Shortly after the Tour de France awards ceremony near the Arc de Triomphe, we will join our hosts for the reception and dinner on the 24th floor of the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) with a striking view of Paris including the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower (not shown in this photo), the Louvre, and much more.
The 2012 Global Perspectives Program – Graduate Deans begins at 3pm (1500) at Hotel Maxim in the Latin Quarter, Paris with our first meeting of the graduate deans who have chosen to participate in this experience. This program is a natural extension of the Global Perspectives Program offered through Virginia Tech Graduate School and through the University of Basel.
