Linking to map out the globalization of higher education and research

uwlakeGreetings from the edge of UW-Madison’s snowy campus.

We are in the process of substantially enhancing the links column to the far right of this page.  The broad objective of this initiative is to provide links to relevant institutions, actors, events, and so on, while also providing some indicators and proxy measures of the nature of the globalization of higher education and research.

These are early days in this process. Please let us know <kolds [at]> if you have any suggestions as to links and categories that we should add…thanks!
