International Education Week – Les McCabe speaks at TEDxUCIrvine on the Global Perspective Imperative

To help celebrate International Education Week take a moment to watch President McCabe speak on the Global Perspective Imperative at TEDxUCIrvine in March 2012. President McCabe’s talk focused on the concept of what it takes to achieve a global perspective and how it is an essential part of student’s undergraduate education. “I believe every college student should leave their undergraduate education with a global perspective and I have dedicated my career to this pursuit.”
