President Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble

ST. LOUIS - Dr. Elizabeth (Beth) J. Stroble, president of Webster University, will participate in an online panel Tuesday for more than 900 leaders in institutions of higher education around the world. She is one of four speakers invited to participate in the discussion “Transnational Education: Growth at the Expense of Quality?” hosted by the World University News service and the Dr. Education discussion board.

Dr. Rahul Choudaha, co-founder and CEO of Dr. Education, will deliver an overview of the forms that  transnational education takes and then will kick off the discussion by asking panelists about how their institutions balance the strategic drivers of quality of education with initiatives for growth across countries and continents.

“I will speak from the perspective of Webster’s historic commitment to a global mission and our evolving experiences in Europe, Asia and Africa,” Stroble said. “I plan to discuss the strategies by which we assure quality and at the same time seek to grow opportunities for students in each of the places we serve.”

Other panelists include Dr. Nigel Healey, the pro-vice chancellor of Nottingham Trent University, Dr. Jason Lane, senior vice chancellor and vice provost for academic planning and strategic leadership at State University of New York, and Dr. Stephan Vincent-Lancrin, senior analyst and deputy division head for the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The virtual discussion will start at 10 a.m. (Central Time) on Tuesday, May 24. Registration to view the online discussion can be found at
