2011 ACE Leadership Network Meeting

December 30, 1899

 

​Global Engagement: Strategies and Opportunities for U.S. Higher Education

November 7, 2011

Since its founding ACE has helped to define the role of higher education in shaping the nation.

Now, we find ourselves in a much more complex world. In a rapidly expanding and interconnected global environment, U.S. higher education must respond to the imperative for substantive and strategic interaction with higher education institutions in other nations. Active engagement with the rest of the world will be fundamental to high quality undergraduate education, helping to move students to the larger world in which they will live, work, and exercise global citizenship. International engagement will also inform the best graduate education and research that builds upon networks of students and scholars sharing a rich global database.

This ACE Network meeting, which took place on November 7, 2011, was designed to help institutional leaders develop priorities and identify strategies in order to navigate the global landscape.

 

Speakers included:

  • Patti McGill Peterson — Presidential Advisor for Global Initiatives, ACE
  • Nigel Thrift — Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick
  • Jane McAuliffe — President, Bryn Mawr College
  • Daniel Papp — President, Kennesaw State University
  • Philip Altbach — Monan University Professor of Educational Leadership and Higher Education, Boston College
