Dear 2011 Global Colloquium Participants:

The American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) invites you to the annual Global Colloquium, which brings together the world's leaders in engineering education. This years Colloquium will take place in Shanghai, China at the Shanghai International Conference Center.
