An Impediment to a Transnational University

For all that former President Lehman spoke of 'transnational university' and David Skorton has given lip service to the continued 'internationalization' of Cornell, the University hit a slight speed bump in the road today:


French farmer Jose Bove, a prominent protester against genetically modified food and agricultural free trade, has been denied entry into the United States, officials of an event he was due to address said on Thursday...

He had been scheduled to speak on Thursday and again on Friday at a conference titled “Global Companies - Global Unions - Global Research - Global Campaigns.” Event organizers included Cornell University’s Global Labor Institute. (emphasis added)

Some of the professors in my former college (ILR) are going to be understandably upset.
