U.S.-Japan Higher Education Engagement Study Findings

 

The U.S.-Japan Higher Education Engagement Study (USJP HEES) website includes data visualizations and fact sheets based on the analysis of point-in-time data captured from 2017 to 2020.

The data visualizations identify trends, patterns, and outlier partnership activity while the fact sheets provide context and key information for physical and virtual exchanges, research collaborations and consortiums, dual/joint degree programs, workforce development initiatives, and branch campuses.

In addition to the data visualizations and fact sheets, USJP HEES also offers case study examples of current U.S.-Japan institutional partnerships, as well as recommendations for strengthening U.S.-Japan bilateral activities for higher education institutions, policymakers, and other stakeholders.

Going forward, the findings will evolve as ACE receives and analyzes additional reported data on U.S.-Japan higher education institutional partnership activities and engagement.
