Engaging with Europe: Enduring Ties, New Opportunities

Part of ACE’s International Briefs for Higher Education Leaders Series

April 13, 2016

ACE's Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement hosted an interactive discussion of higher education in Europe, and opportunities for engagement by U.S. institutions.

Higher education in Europe has undergone significant changes in the last two decades. While there is a long history of collaboration between the U.S. and European higher education sectors, new challenges and opportunities for engagement are emerging. This webinar - now available as a recording - explores key aspects of the dynamic U.S.-Europe higher education relationship, including:

  • Evolution of the Bologna Process and the European Higher Education Area, and their impact on U.S.-Europe collaboration.
  • Recent trends in trans-Atlantic student mobility and implications for student recruiting.
  • Overview of the Erasmus+ initiative and how U.S. institutions can participate.
Accompanying the webinar is a printed brief featuring 9 articles by experts in the field. Designed to complement the webinar and explore related topics in greater depth, the printed brief is an invaluable resource for campus leaders making strategic decisions about international programming and initiatives.
