This event is organized by German university liaison offices in New York to more effectively build partnerships with North American institutions of higher education and connect with American students and scholars. 

Germany’s Deputy Consul General in Chicago, Dr. Andreas Götze (tbc), will deliver welcoming remarks before the panel, and a networking reception with beer, bratwurst, and stand-up comedy by German comedian Vince Ebert will follow.

This event is free of charge and open to the public – register here. Find more information on the New York Liaison Offices on the DAAD website.
