This Month’s Featured Workshop (Concluded)
A conversation on Senate Bill 1110
Date & Time: February 24th @ 4:00pm
Description: On February 8, 2021, a new bill was filed in the Florida Senate (SB1110) that would
1) remove the Florida-China Institute from the list of authorized Florida linkage institutes,
2) prohibit any public college or university in our state from having an agreement with any entity based in a communist country,
3) require public colleges and universities in our state from withdrawing from any such agreement.
How will this impact international partnerships, international student recruitment, and international education in our state? How are different state colleges and universities responding to this proposed legislation? Please join the conversation among peers.
