Argentina, Brazil, Chile - Engaging with the Southern Cone

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

April 24, 2014 2:00 PM

The ACE Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement held an interactive discussion of higher education in the “Southern Cone” countries of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, and opportunities for engagement by U.S. institutions.


A number of programs and initiatives have been implemented in recent years to facilitate higher education partnerships and collaboration between U.S. institutions and their Southern Cone counterparts. For such ventures to succeed, U.S. institutional leaders need to understand the region’s broader higher education landscape, which includes a complex history, emerging trends, and important variations by country. 


This webinar - now available as a recording - explores key aspects of higher education in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile, including:

  • An overview of the higher education system in each country
  • International partnerships and collaborations – government and institutional initiatives, models, and opportunities
  • Student and scholar mobility – demographics, policies, and future trends
  • Implications and opportunities for US institutions seeking to engage in the region

Accompanying the webinar is a printed (PDF) brief featuring 11 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. Download the printed brief (PDF) 1MB.
