“The 3nd annual United Nations Academic Impact J. Michael Adams Lecture and Conversation Series will be held on 1 December from 1:15 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. in Conference Room 1 at UN Headquarters. This year we have the pleasure of hearing from Mark Harris, President Emeritus of ELS Educational Services and Berlitz. For more than fifty years, ELS and Berlitz have served the cause of multilingualism and global citizenship by empowering students to acquire fluency in a language other than their own. Mark Harris was also instrumental in launching the ELS/United Nations Academic Impact Many Languages, One World International Essay Contest and Youth Forum.”
