China: Emerging Opportunities and Challenges in Higher Education Cooperation

December 30, 1899

 

​Part of ACE's International Briefs for Higher Education Leaders Series

As American higher education institutions struggle with issues of shrinking budgets, productivity and more, they must also stay connected to the international community. Around the world, countries like China are making great strides in developing their own higher education systems. For American institutions, developing knowledge and awareness of the global community will be critical.

To help institutions develop their expertise, ACE's Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement hosted a webinar on April 26 that discussed higher education in China and its implications for institutions around the world.

Presented in partnership with the Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) at Boston College (MA), this webinar was part of International Briefs for Higher Education Leaders, a series designed specifically to help senior leadership develop knowledge about key issues in international higher education.

As part of your registration, you will receive a set of ten briefings on China's higher education system, all of which have been commissioned for this webinar. Written by experts based in China and the United States, these articles cover the key aspects of the higher education landscape, including trends in national policy, the growth of foreign campuses in China, and the challenges of integrating Chinese students into American institutions.

Speakers included:

Wang Qi—Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Education of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China

Kathryn Mohrman—Director of the University Design Consortium at Arizona State University

Philip Altbach—Director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College

Patti McGill Peterson (moderator)—Presidential Advisor for Global Initiatives, American Council on Education

ACE President Molly Corbett Broad provided welcoming remarks.

Speakers presented highlights from their articles from the targeted briefing before engaging in conversation with Patti Peterson, and answering questions from attendees throughout the webinar.
