Christos Orfanidis

Christos Orfanidis is a PhD Student in the Department of Leadership, Higher & Adult Education at the University of Toronto. During his tenure as R.F. Harney Graduate Research Fellow, he will be launching a study exploring the strategic incompatibility between universities’ increasing investment in internationalization plans that promote global student mobility and their institutional ethical adherence to the global sustainable development goals and achievement of net-zero emissions. This project will explore the possibility of strategizing around alternative methods of internationalization that do not involve environmentally harmful movement, and it will examine the necessary groundwork for greater ethical institutional policy integration between internationalization and sustainability.
