The delegation started the week with an introduction and foundational keynote from the Erickson Distinguished Chair Emeritus (Department of Education), Professor Roger Baldwin. to talk about current U.S. Higher Education overview and U.S. university organization structure and responsibilities of its main units. This not only helps the delegation have a solid understanding of the U.S. Higher Education systems, but it also sets the foundational framework for the following keynotes.
