Transatlantic Dialogues

December 30, 1899

 

​Since 1989, ACE has engaged in a series of biennial meetings with the European University Association (EUA, formerly CRE: The Association of European Universities). These invitational meetings provide an opportunity for presidents, rectors, and vice chancellors from the United States, Canada and Europe to engage in an in-depth conversation on contemporary higher education issues. 

In cooperation with EUA and Universities Canada​ (formerly the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada), ACE sponsored the 14th Transatlantic Dialogue in Toronto in 2014, with leaders of 10 U.S. institutions and their counterparts from Europe and Canada in attendance.  The meeting explored the question of institutional accountability, and participants compared and contrasted their experiences.

 
History  

2012: The 13th Transatlantic Dialogue, "Leading the Globally-engaged Institution: New Directions, Choices, and Dilemmas," was held in Salzburg, Austria.  A CIGE Insights paper, "Leading the Globally-engaged Institution: A Report from the 2012 Transatlantic Dialogue" summarizes the discussion.

2008: The theme of the meeting, Brave New World Revisited: Competition and Cooperation in Higher Education, reflected on the 2001 Transatlantic Dialogue meeting that examined a future shaped by technology, globalization and competition. Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia hosted the gathering. 

2005: Transatlantic Dialogue focused on the changing social compact between the state and higher education. 

2003: This meeting, cosponsored by ACE, CRE, and the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, took place at the Salzburg Seminar. The occasional paper "Higher Education in a Pluralist World: A Transatlantic View," is based on the meeting conversations. 

2001: This meeting hosted by the Université Laval in Québec focused on the rapidly changing global landscape of higher education. The occasional paper, "The Brave New (and Smaller) World of Higher Education: A Transatlantic View," builds upon the conversation of that meeting.
