Kennesaw State University leaders are headed to Cali, Colombia, Oct. 24-26 for the Americas Competitiveness Forum, a biennial event that has matured as an international conference since it was birthed in Atlanta in 2007.

Barry Morris, vice provost for strategic initiatives, and Adrian Epps, associate dean of the university’s College of Science and Mathematics, will speak on a special panel on STEM education - science, technology, engineering and math.

They will be part of a larger Kennesaw delegation to the forum, which will include an all-day education session for the first time since 2007. Kathy Schwaig, dean of the Coles College of Business, and Sheb True, director of the college's international center, will also attend the forum, which is expected to draw ministers of education and other educators from all over the Western Hemisphere.
