University formally joins global network

John Hearn and Joel Seligman

Worldwide Universities Network Chief Executive John Hearn and University President Joel Seligman sign an agreement and discuss building a relationship with other research universities around the world. “Our collaborations with the Worldwide Universities Network will open innumerable possibilities as the University engages with faculty and students across five continents,” said Seligman. “We expect the alliance to produce even more support for scholarly research and break the barriers that may keep people in different parts of the world from working toward common goals.”

Worldwide Universities Network (WUN) was established in 2000 with a mission to be one of the leading international higher education networks, collaborating to accelerate the creation of knowledge, and developing leaders who will be prepared to address the significant challenges and opportunities in a rapidly changing world. The network now has 18 members, including Rochester.
