UMSL Global celebrates internationally engaged faculty members during Touhill reception


Internationally connected faculty members at the University of Missouri–St. Louis gathered last Wednesday in the Terrace Lobby at the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center for a reception organized by UMSL Global.

It was a chance to celebrate the many ways UMSL engages with the international community and also honor the faculty members who are the leading edge of that global outreach.

“St. Louis launched the Mosaic Project a decade ago, which is the community’s joint effort to systematically attract and retain global talent,” said Liane Constantine, the executive director of UMSL Global and the university’s chief international officer, during her welcoming remarks. “It ties in with the state’s mission to increase foreign direct investment into the region. The need for globally experienced or, at a minimum, globally minded people is huge in our region, so UMSL, as No. 1 workforce provider to our to our region, has a commitment to produce and to generate that talent that is needed in businesses of tomorrow – and actually already of today.
