The Global Midwest Program is co-sponsored by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the CIC.

The Global Midwest Program also will feature a conversation with leading experts, including University of Illinois President Michael Hogan, about how to reform higher education and keep the Midwest globally competitive. It will take place March 31 at the University Club of Chicago; doors open at 5:30 p.m.
