"Assessing the Impact of the Global Financial Crisis- Challenges Facing the United States, European Union and East Asian Governments" will be the topic of a talk scheduled Tuesday, April 20, at 1:20 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union East Ballroom. The talk is free and open to the public.

Tom Byrne, senior vice president with Moody's Sovereign Risk Unit in Singapore, will be the speaker. He says the recent financial crisis is truly global, affecting every developed country in the world. The first step toward solving the problem, he says, lies in finding its roots and impacts.

Part of a statewide International Studies speaker series, the lecture is sponsored by the UW International Studies Program and is funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant to UW in partnership with all seven Wyoming community colleges.

Jean Garrison, director of the UW International Studies Program, says, "The three-year grant provides a unique opportunity for Wyoming colleges to collaborate on internationalization efforts, chiefly to develop a cohesive academic track in international studies and to expand courses with international content and foreign language offerings at community colleges."
