Registration is now open for the 2018 ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative, the annual forum for faculty and administrators to share ideas for furthering their international agendas. Presidents, provosts, and senior international officers are invited to attend the event, which will take place in Washington, DC, on Feb. 17, 2018.
Themed “Leading in a World of Growing Complexity,” this year’s Collaborative will explore ACE’s Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses report, drawing conclusions between the findings of the report and attendees’ experiences.
Mapping points toward one overarching trend: the growing complexity of leading and managing internationalization. Reporting on all aspects of internationalization—from curriculum to partnerships to student mobility—institutions say they are creating more structures, policies, and processes to navigate through this challenging new environment.
Other issues to be covered include:
- What are the sources of increased complexity in leading and managing internationalization? Are some internal as well as external? Do we understand them well enough to manage them effectively?
- How do we align emerging structures, policies, and processes with our international goals? Who is responsible for the alignment?
- Are there risks to a more coordinated approach to managing internationalization? How do we encourage innovation? How do we ensure that decisions include all relevant stakeholders?
Working in partnership with the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), ACE co-hosts the Collaborative for faculty and administrators to come together as a learning community to address challenges, share ideas, and help one another implement comprehensive internationalization strategies.
The Collaborative meets in conjunction with AIEA’s Annual Conference. Registration for AIEA is separate, and Collaborative participants are encouraged to attend both events.
