President Santa Ono (4/4)
As the prices of tuition in domestic universities rise, many face the challenge of being priced out of higher education. But there may be hope beyond their country’s borders. The emerging student — specifically international students — may begin looking very different than just another affluent student seeking to learn abroad.
In this episode of the Changemaker series, President Santa Ono of the University of British Columbia discusses how emerging international students may seek more affordable opportunities at universities in other nations, and what this means for nations with conflicting political interests.
President Ono is a president of a Canadian school and a former president of a U.S. school which brings an enlightening perspective to the conversation around global education. President Ono was the 28th President of the University of Cincinnati, and today, he is the 15th President of the University of British Columbia.
