The Closing Ceremony of the Spring 2019 term of the Globalization Program will take place on Thursday, 30 May 2019 at 5 pm, in the Aula Magna.
Since February, over 130 students representing more than 30 nationalities throughout three continents have been attending courses taught by professors from VIU's member universities.
The Globalization Program brings together talented, motivated students from the member universities in a truly multicultural, international and interdisciplinary environment. Students enjoy a powerful learning experience in which they develop their capacity for critical thinking, working across disciplines, creatively embracing new ideas. The academic courses are complemented by an extensive program of co-curricular activities, taking students out of the classroom, and into the city of Venice for on-site classes, visits to cultural institutions, civic associations and businesses, and to places of historic and artistic significance.
It has been an intense semester, with the highest number of students and professors participating since the program began in 1997.
The program of the Ceremony will include:
Opening Remarks, Prof. Carlo Giupponi, Dean of Venice International University and Prof. Luca Pes, Vice-Dean and Globalization Program Scientific Director
Award of Scholarships for Internships in Italy
Awards for Academic Excellence, selected by the Spring 2019 faculty
A farewell reception will follow.
