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.
