Terri Givens – “Immigration, Race and Religion in Europe – Policy and Politics in the 21st Century”
Terri Givens has been a visionary leader since early in her career in higher education, from founding and directing the Center for European Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, to leading the university’s efforts in Mexico and Latin America as Vice Provost for Undergraduate Curriculum and International Activities. In her most recent position as Provost and Chief Academic Officer at Menlo College she has led faculty and staff in developing programs for first generation students, updating curriculum and instituting infrastructure for new evidence-based assessment tools. She has forged ties with community organizations that focus on college opportunities for disadvantaged youth and diversity in Silicon Valley. Givens is a strong advocate for access to higher education and developing the tools for student success that will ensure that a wide range of students continue to find opportunities in higher education.
Givens’s talk, which will focus on race and immigration in Europe, is presented in partnership with the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Public and International Affairs.
Following the lecture, the Willson Center will host a reception at 6 p.m. for Transnational European Studies at UGA. The Willson Center is located at 1260 S. Lumpkin St.
