In June of 2013, I was part of a group of presenters from Old Dominion University that presented 6 different presentations at the XV Comparative Education World Congress, which was held in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The presentations were:
- Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered student rights on Italian campuses.
- Retention issues of mature students: A comparative examination of programs in the United States and Ireland.
- Disability law and university policy in the United States.
- Comparative analysis of the United States and United Kingdom higher education gift-giving system.
- Recent Federal higher education initiatives in the United States.
- Comparative higher education systems class as a means to increase international understanding of higher education systems.
