It was an honor for BUUIC to have Prof. Jesse Lutabingwa to give a very special and thought provoking talk on ‘The Importance of Internationalization and Global Engagement for Institutions of Higher Education’. The talk was given on 24 February 2020 at IC203, Burapha University International College. Prof. Lutabingwa is a Vice Chancellor of Appalachian State University. He is a professor in public education and associate and he also takes care of International Education and Development Office. His talk was very useful for both administrators and students as it has broadened the international perspectives and made a lot of us to realize that we are living in an interdependent society where global competitiveness is high. He also emphasized that it is crucial for the institutions to produce the graduates who are problem solvers, critical thinkers, creative thinkers, cross-culturally competent, adaptable, flexible, and team players.
