Education in the Service of Humanity: President Ensign to Speak at Louisiana State University Event


President Margee Ensign will share her perspectives and ideas on how education can be of service to humanity at an event organized by the Louisiana State University (LSU), and its state-wide campuses.

 The talk, "International Education: In the Service of Humanity," will be held virtually on April 14, 2022.

LSU's interim provost, Matthew Lee, welcomed the upcoming talk: "It is a privilege to have an internationally recognized humanitarian such as Dr. Ensign visit LSU to discuss the critical impact of international education on the lives of students. This kind of high-impact experience helps ensure our students are prepared to be global citizens for the 21st century.”

In prefacing her talk, President Ensign referenced the development-centered education students receive at the American University of Nigeria. "Ultimately, our job in higher education is to ignite a spark within a student that sets off his or her passion. One of the most effective ways we can do that is through civic engagement. Regardless of the subject matter a student pursues, it's up to us to help our students become graduates who will become servant leaders for their communities.”
