ACE Hosts International Education Roundtable

December 30, 1899

 

Representatives of embassies and the World Bank visited ACE on Feb. 6 for the inaugural meeting of the International Education Roundtable, an effort to build an ongoing dialogue between American higher education and the Washington diplomatic community.

ACE President Molly Corbett Broad and staff of ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) helped facilitate the discussion, in which members of the roundtable spoke about their countries’ priorities for higher education, partnerships in the United States, particular challenges they’re facing, and how ACE could help them achieve their long-term goals.

The countries invited to the roundtable were chosen to represent diverse levels of development. Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Germany, Japan, Indonesia and Pakistan joined the discussion, along with the World Bank’s tertiary education representative.

The roundtable is part of CIGE’s efforts to deepen international ties and outreach for U.S. higher education, one of the top recommendations of the 2011 Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement.
