Strength through Global Leadership and Engagement

December 30, 1899

 

​U.S. Higher Education in the 21st Century

Higher education exists in a world that increasingly operates across sovereign borders. Just as countries have become more interconnected worldwide, so, too, have colleges and universities.

As the global education landscape evolves, colleges and universities must understand the challenges and opportunities before them. As the major coordinating organization representing presidents of all types of U.S. accredited, degree-granting institutions, ACE is uniquely positioned to guide American colleges and universities as they navigate this highly interconnected world.

To address changes taking place on the international education landscape, ACE convened the Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement in 2010. The panel met over the course of the year to assess what ACE must do to support the global engagement of U.S. higher education institutions.

The panel, consisting of higher education leaders appointed by ACE President Molly Corbett Broad, analyzed the current environment and developed a body of principles and practices that can serve as a framework for further global engagement by colleges and universities.

Building on these principles, the panel identified key ways in which ACE can:

  • Lead on critical global higher education issues
  • Assume a broader advocacy role
  • Conduct, gather, and disseminate research and analysis
  • Provide constituent services in the global arena
  • Deepen international ties and outreach
