U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative - Applications ClosedU.S.-Japan COIL Initiative - Applications Closedhttps://www.acenet.edu/Events/Pages/US-Japan-COIL.aspxU.S.-Japan COIL Initiative - Applications Closed<img alt="A picture of the orange Torii Gates in Japan, with black lettering on them." src="/PublishingImages/Interior-Page-Heroes/Torii_gates—Fushimi_Inari_Shrine_(9977683204).jpg?RenditionID=9" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> The American Council on Education (ACE) is pleased to announce the U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative, aimed at expanding U.S.-Japan higher education ties through collaborative online international learning (COIL). ACE invites applications from U.S. accredited, degree-granting higher education institutions for the U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative. Through a competitive selection process, ACE will identify up to six U.S. institutions to work with new or existing Japanese partner institutions to develop, deliver, and assess one or more COIL courses. The COIL method—also referred to as virtual exchange—is a cost-effective, accessible, and scalable method of expanding global learning opportunities for greater numbers of U.S. higher education students. COIL is an innovative pedagogy involving collaborative teaching and learning in two or more countries facilitated by online communication that has been developed and promoted by the State University of New York (SUNY) COIL Center . For over a decade, ACE has recognized the COIL model as a cost-effective, accessible method for delivering global learning and intercultural experience to greater numbers of U.S. students, particularly the 90 percent of U.S. undergraduates who do not participate in education abroad. Faculty from institutions selected for the U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative will collaborate to develop a joint syllabus, and students in the two countries will then work together to complete assignments that meet shared learning objectives. Institutions that have existing partnerships with Japan, as well as those that do not currently collaborate with institutions in Japan, are encouraged to apply. ACE will work with selected institutions that do not have active partnerships to identify a Japanese partner for COIL course development. Representatives of selected institutions will participate in a 3-day course development workshop with their Japanese counterparts in October 2018 in Washington, DC. Workshop expenses, including transportation and hotel, will be covered under terms of the award. Selected institutions will receive a limited number of faculty development stipends. Travel stipends are available for a limited number of students enrolled in one of the new COIL courses to use toward education abroad in Japan. The U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative is designed to test the idea that students who participate in COIL courses will increase their understanding of the partner country, sharpen their cultural competency skills, and become better prepared for in-person education exchange. If successful, ACE aims to expand the program to include additional U.S. and Japanese partner institutions. <p>The American Council on Education (ACE) is pleased to announce the U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative, aimed at expanding U.S.-Japan higher education ties through collaborative online international learning (COIL).</p> <div></div> <p>ACE invites applications from U.S. accredited, degree-granting higher education institutions for the U.S.-Japan COIL Initiative.

Speaking Truth and Acting With Integrity: Navigating a Campus Racial CrisisSpeaking Truth and Acting With Integrity: Navigating a Campus Racial Crisishttps://www.acenet.edu/Events/Pages/Speaking-Truth-Acting-With-Integrity-Navigating-Campus-Racial-Crisis.aspxSpeaking Truth and Acting with Integrity: Confronting Challenges of Campus Racial Climate [Recording Available] As campuses across the country experience a resurgence of racist and hateful incidents, a report from the American Council on Education (ACE) explores how the University of Missouri responded to the 2015 crisis on its campus and offers recommendations for other university leaders who strive to create and maintain a positive racial climate before, during, and after a crisis. “Speaking Truth and Acting with Integrity Confronting Challenges of Campus Racial Climate,” co-authored by Adrianna Kezar of the University of Southern California, and Sharon Fries-Britt of the University of Maryland, offers useful frameworks for building campuses’ capacity to address diversity and inclusion, as well as to work through the emotional healing often required after a racial incident or crisis. An event held on Thursday, November 29, shared more about the report and its findings, and about how leaders can examine these frameworks as a way to gauge their own approach and progress. The report is a collaboration between the University of Missouri’s Division of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity and ACE’s Center for Policy Research and Strategy (CPRS).

ACE West Winter SummitACE West Winter Summithttps://www.acenet.edu/Events/Pages/2019-ACE-West-Winter-Summit.aspxACE West Winter Summit: Tackling the Mental Health Crisis on American Campuses<img alt="A picture of a student in a cap and gown on graduation day" src="/PublishingImages/Interior-Page-Heroes/west-summer-summit-ads13_1200x625.jpg?RenditionID=9" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> Eleven percent of college students seriously thought about attempting suicide in the past year. Of this percentage, one in 20 made a plan to carry it out. Three out of 10 college students have struggled with depression in the last two weeks. One in 4 students have expressed issues with anxiety. These sobering statistics remind us that today’s college students struggle with a variety of mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide. Institutional leaders must be prepared to address mental health issues within the campus context and to create a supportive learning environment for students. Accordingly, ACE is convening a regional community to proactively address the challenge of student mental health and how it impacts individual institutions. Learn from experienced thought leaders, share best practices with your colleagues, and experiment with new ideas to plan effective future responses. Over this day-and-a-half summit in Tucson, institutional leaders will Examine the issues and current trends related to college student mental health; Explore inter- and intra-institutional partnerships to foster mental health on campus; Consider promising practices (and common missteps) for creating a campus environment that promotes mental health and well-being for all students; and, Discuss how different types of institutions can best engage key constituent groups (e.g., faculty, staff, students, community members, etc.) in both addressing mental health challenges and supporting stakeholders working with affected individuals. Register to gain knowledge and insights to effectively address student mental health and well-being, a critical topic for higher education administrators.

With increasing access to higher education in the United States, student enrollment is reflecting more than ever a diversity of student identities and life stages—students of color, adult learners, parents, veterans, first-generation students, new Americans, and international students. According to ACE research, so-called “post-traditional” students now comprise a majority of U.S. postsecondary enrollment, and their participation in higher education is growing. How can U.S. colleges and universities recognize the increasing complexity of their students’ cultural backgrounds and life experiences as a benefit to student learning, in and out of the classroom? How does increasing campus diversity contribute to global learning? Looking to our international community, what new approaches are other higher education systems adopting to internationalize that may inform the future of U.S. higher education? These topics and others will be explored at the 2019 ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative , a one-day, annual conference devoted to meeting the challenges of campus internationalization. The Collaborative meets in conjunction with the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) Annual Conference . Registration for the two events is separate, and we strongly encourage you to attend both. This year’s Collaborative will include opportunities to Explore various methods of delivering global learning*—in the classroom, using interactive technologies, and through experiential learning. Rethink the way global education remains relevant throughout a learner’s lifetime, and ways students can continue to strengthen their global learning and experience. Discuss strategies for increasing access to global learning across a broad and diverse spectrum of learners. Use data to reimagine and inform the student experience. The Collaborative is designed for internationalization leaders, campus administrators, deans, and faculty interested in sharing best practices for engaging diverse learners and preparing them to contribute to tomorrow’s world. *Global learning is defined by Landorf and Doscher (2015) as “the process of diverse people collaboratively analyzing and addressing complex problems that transcend borders.” <h3>What will be the future of internationalization in higher education? </h3> <h4 class="ms-rteElement-ACETier2Heading"> </h4> <p>With increasing access to higher education in the United States, student enrollment is reflecting more than ever a diversity of student identities and life stages—students of color, adult learners, parents, veterans, first-generation students, new Americans, and international students.

ACE Virtual Exchange Webinar SeriesACE Virtual Exchange Webinar Serieshttps://www.acenet.edu/News-Room/Pages/ACE-Virtual-Exchange-Webinar-Series-1.aspxACE Virtual Exchange Webinar Series Student and Learning Data Privacy in Higher Education Virtual Exchanges Higher education institutions around the world are engaging in virtual exchanges— technology-enabled, sustained, people to people education programs— with partners in other countries at an exponential rate. Virtual exchanges offer a neutral platform for students from a diversity of backgrounds to have the freedom to express their individuality, demonstrate curiosity and develop empathy through meaningful international online collaboration. Improved internet bandwidth, the proliferation of online communication/social media technologies, and cloud-based applications and learning management systems are easing how instructors and students across borders are able to work together for shared online teaching and learning. However, with these advantageous tools have also come unintended consequences to how student data and learning data are captured, used, and managed. Though there are new data privacy laws emerging to protect personal data collection (i.e., U.S. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA/SHERPA),ERASMUS+ Virtual Exchange - Privacy Statement and the Japanese Act on the Protection of Personal Information), there are still considerable gaps in what data is protected and how protections are enforced in different parts of the world. In the U.S, in lieu of having student data and learning data privacy and safeguard policies at the national level, many higher education institutions are now proactively creating their own data privacy principles and practices to protect data deriving from faculty and students engaged in online learning activities like virtual exchange. Please join us for an interactive webinar discussion with Jim Philips from the University of California System, a higher education institution system that has been on the forefront of a movement to raise awareness of learning data privacy in U.S. higher education; and Sara Collins from the Future of Privacy Forum, a U.S. nonprofit organization whose Education Privacy Project serves as a catalyst for privacy leadership and scholarship; advancing principled higher education data practices in support of emerging technologies for a safe, enriching academic experience. This webinar session is the first within a series of ACE webinars geared to support and promote best practices for U.S. higher education institutions using technology to advance global learning, intercultural skills, and cross-border collaboration for a greater number of postsecondary students.

Nevertheless, it has become clear over the past several years that public skepticism about the value of higher education is on the rise . Concern about rising college costs, student debt loads, and workplace readiness has reignited long-standing debates about the role of higher education. This June, ACE is gathering thought leaders and experienced campus leaders to decipher the necessary steps to affirm the long-term benefits of higher education to individuals and our wider society. Join us at the ACE West Summer Summit in Portland, Oregon. It is important for presidents, provosts, and other senior leaders to understand the current perceptions of higher education in order to consider how best to position their institutions to address them and meet the needs of current and future students. This summit will provide an opportunity for leadership teams to Unpack the public’s perception of higher education. Assess how those views apply to their own institutions.

Whither HEA Reauthorization?Whither HEA Reauthorization?https://www.acenet.edu/Events/Pages/Whither-HEA-Reauthorization.aspxWhither HEA Reauthorization?<img alt="Picture of the ACE Engage Logo" src="/PublishingImages/branding/engage-web-tile.png?RenditionID=9" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> ​​​​​​​​​​​The Higher Education Act (HEA), the main law that governs federal financial aid and other higher education programs, is supposed to be renewed every five years. But it was last reauthorized in 2008 and has been running on temporary extensions for the past several years while lawmakers start—then stop—the reauthorization process, only to have to begin again every two years when a new Congress is sworn in. ​ As 2019 draws to a close and Congress prepares to leave DC for its holiday break, American Council on Education (ACE) Senior Vice President Terry W. Hartle and ACE Director of Government Relations Jon Fansmith will provide an overview of the prospects for HEA reauthorization, major issues involved with the legislation, and the implications for colleges and universities. HEA Reauthorization​ Q&A Session In addition to this 45-minute webinar presentation about the future of HEA reauthorization, Hartle and Fansmith will hold a 30-minute question-and-answer session on the same topic the next day, December 11, at 23​​0 p.m. (ET) exclusively on ACE Engage ® , ACE's peer-to-peer online community and learning platform. Background This fall, Rep. Bobby Scott (D-VA), chair of the House Education and​ Labor Committee, introduced a new version of HEA reauthorization legislation, the College Affordability Act (H.R. 4674), which was approved by the committee on October 31 along a party-line vote. At over 1,200 pages, it's a dense, complicated piece of legislation, with a number of provisions that would be beneficial for students and institutions, such as significant increases in student aid and support for institutions that have historically been under-resourced. However, these provisions are offset in parts by intrusive, complicated, or burdensome requirements that will undercut the bill's primary goal to make higher education more affordable. See the letter that ACE sent on behalf of 32 other higher education associations to the House commenting on the legislation by clicking here . Meanwhile, HEA discussions in the Senate are currently stalled, although Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), chair of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, has attempted to revive the process with a bill containing a handful of changes to the HEA that he released in September. Sen.​​ Alexander and Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL) also introduced legislation to simplify the process for applying for federal financial aid. Neither of those efforts have significant support from Democrats and, at present, they appear unlikely to advance. <p>​​​​​​​​​​​The Higher Education Act (HEA), the main law that governs federal financial aid and other higher education programs, is supposed to be renewed every five years.

" src="/PublishingImages/Interior-Page-Heroes/Adelphi-2015-Ext1_008_HiRes.jpg?RenditionID=9" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /> ​The Department of Education on May 6 released its long-anticipated final rule significantly amending the department's existing Title IX regulations. Given the importance of this final rule, and the intense interest among various campus stakeholders, ACE provided a “just in time" webinar on Monday, May 11, at 200 pm (ET), providing a high-level overview of key provisions and takeaways for presidents, chancellors, and other senior campus leaders with Title IX responsibilities. Colleges and universities are committed to upholding Title IX and to creating campuses that are safe, supportive, and responsive for all students so they can benefit from the widest possible array of educational opportunities. Watch the recording to hear from several experts on this topic to learn about provisions in the new rule, any changes made in response to higher education and other stakeholders' concerns, and key considerations for campus administrators as they prepare to implement the new rule. What Is Title IX? Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex under any education program or activity that receives federal funding. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual assault, is a form of unlawful sex discrimination prohibited under Title IX. In recent years, there has been significant and ongoing policy discussions among federal lawmakers, the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, colleges and universities, victim's rights groups, and other key stakeholders regarding the obligations of colleges and universities under Title IX to address the serious problem of campus sexual assault. On Nov. 29, 2018, the Department of Education issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend the Title IX regulations. ACE, along with 60 other higher education associations, submitted comments on the proposed rule in January 2019, as did nearly 125,000 other interested stakeholders. <p>​The Department of Education on May 6 released its long-anticipated final rule significantly amending the department's existing Title IX regulations. <br></p><p>Given the importance of this final rule, and the intense interest among various campus stakeholders, ACE provided a “just in time" webinar on Monday, May 11, at 2:00 pm (ET), providing a high-level overview of key provisions and takeaways for presidents, chancellors, and other senior campus leaders with Title IX responsibilities.</p><p>Colleges and universities are committed to upholding Title IX and to creating campuses that are safe, supportive, and responsive for all students so they can benefit from the widest possible array of educational opportunities.

What can higher education leaders do to prepare students for the new landscape? How does career readiness look different than it did even a few months ago for students planning to enter the job market in the coming year? Will students seeking to advance in their careers be forced to seek different types of opportunities because of economic disruption? Do new competencies become central? Even after the COVID-19 crisis, for example, will it continue to be more important than ever to demonstrate an ability to work remotely?

Her recent report revealed that 68% of parenting students were housing insecure in the previous year, compared to 42% of students were housing insecure in the previous year. The pandemic has exasperated the crisis around basic needs. In an unprecedented move, the federal government granted higher ed with nearly $7B through the CARES Act to be used elusively for emergency aid for their students. Learn more about why granting emergency aid has always been important but is most especially critical today, along with strategies for how to assess basic needs and disburse funds.
