Higher education in the 21st century is fundamentally a global enterprise that requires increasing levels of cross-border cooperation. Many U.S. instittuions are expanding their collaboration with international partners, often beyond traditional agreements for student exchange or faculty research. Without a comprehensive, coordinated strategy, however, the increasing volume and complexity of these activities can consume scarce time and resources to limited effect.
On November 18, 2014, ACE convened a group of college and university presidents, chief academic officers, and senior international officers in Washington, DC for the Leadership Network for International Education. The meeting was designed to help institutional leaders develop strategies to form, sustain, and manage effective global partnerships.
