On behalf of the U7+ Alliance of World Universities Executive Committee, Northwestern University would like to invite you to attend the main plenary session of the virtual 2020 U7+ Presidential Summit, hosted in partnership with Columbia University, Georgetown University and the University of California, Berkeley. The Summit will convene the presidents and top leaders of more than 50 universities across 20 countries to explore actions higher education institutions can take to address pressing global challenges.

The main plenary session will feature a special address from the United Nations Office of the Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth, Ms. Jayathma Wickramanayake, a fireside chat featuring higher education leaders discussing the role of universities as global actors and a closing ceremony with a special performance from the student a cappella group Purple Haze.
