The third annual VT KnowledgeWorks Global Partnership Week will bring university students, faculty, and staff from all over the world together to congregate, collaborate, form partnerships, and build their global networks. The Global Partnership is a multi-layered, ongoing cooperative association of regions building permanent social, academic, and business relationships.
We mean "from all over the world." Here's a global view of our University Partners who will bring students and faculty to Blacksburg and Roanoke, Virginia, August 19 – August 25, 2012.
Our global students will need local beds. We invite you to be a global host family.
