Global Higher Education Could Be “The Rising Tide That Lifts All Ships,” Says ACE Paper

February 11, 2014

world in hands


​ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Education (CIGE) today released a white paper exploring the state of global engagement of higher education and the key actors in cross-border initiatives. 

Among other key points, the paper asserts that institutions are better served in partnerships abroad if they have undergone the process of comprehensive internationalization first.

Originally presented at the Beijing Forum conference​ in November 2013, Challenges and Opportunities for the Global Engagement of Higher Education takes a frank look at some of the issues institutions may encounter while pursuing international partnerships and the rewards that can come of these arrangements.

Among the topics: student mobility, the development   of “foreign relations” strategies by institutions, the fiscal motivations for internationalization, competition for and collaboration among faculty, higher education‘s role in representing national interests and public diplomacy, and a growing tendency for institutions to operate beyond sovereignty.

The paper is a second in the new series, CIGE Insights: Global Higher Education. The first installment, Leading the Globally-Engaged Institution: New Directions, Choices and Dilemmas, was released in December.
