International Briefs for Higher Education Leaders

December 30, 1899

 

Developed by ACE's Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) in partnership with the Boston College Center for International Higher Education, the International Briefs for Higher Education Leaders series is designed to help inform strategic decisions about international programming and initiatives. Aimed at senior university executives who need a quick but incisive perspective on international issues and trends, the Briefs offer analysis and commentary on key countries and topics of importance to higher education worldwide. 


Each edition of International Briefs consists of:

  • A printed brief providing an overview of current issues in international higher education and featuring 10-12 articles written by leading scholars, policymakers and practitioners.
  • An interactive webinar featuring authors from the brief.  
Spring 2015 Edition:
