Zelenskyy will speak and engage in a Q&A about how America’s leading research universities, including CU Boulder, and Ukrainian officials and educators can work together to help rebuild and transform his country’s decimated higher education sector. CU Boulder students, faculty and staff will be able to join the livestream of President Zelenskyy’s address via YouTube

According to the AAU, Zelenskyy’s administration envisions a postwar Ukrainian education sector with world-class research universities that drive scientific discovery and technological advancement, contribute to the nation’s economy and collaborate closely with American universities. During his address, Zelenskyy will outline his forward-thinking vision for Ukraine and speak about the Ukrainian Global University, which brings together an international network of institutions to help displaced Ukrainian students and scholars continue their education and research.

A recording of President Zelenskyy’s remarks will be available following the event.
