Professor Peter Kuchinke delivered a keynote address at the International Conference on European Higher Education in Vilnius, Lithuania, in early September. The conference marked the assumption of the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and focused on the expansion and internationalization of European Higher Education within and outside of its 28 member states.
Kuchinke’s talking points addressed the role of European universities for U.S. graduate study and research. In his presentation, he used the example of University of Illinois to explore student expectations, needs, and experiences of overseas study.
Kuchinke, a professor in the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership, serves as one of 25 U.S. and Canadian ambassadors for PromoDoc, an initiative by the European Commission’s Erasmus Mundus program.
