2019 Internationalization Collaborative to Consider Student Demographics

December 03, 2018

Preparing for Tomorrow's Student

​College and university campuses are reflecting more than ever the diversity of student identities and life stages—students of color, adult learners, single parents, veterans, first-generation students, immigrants, and international students. How can U.S. colleges and universities recognize the complexity of their student bodies as a strength and integrate their varied backgrounds as a resource for global education? What new approaches are other higher education systems around the world adopting to internationalize? 

Themed “Preparing for Tomorrow's Student,” the 2019 ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative seeks to address the future of internationalization in higher education. International campus administrators and faculty are encouraged to register now for the Collaborative, which will take place in San Francisco Jan. 19.

The design of this year’s Collaborative will include opportunities to:

  • Adopt various modes of learning (experiential, interactive technologies, etc.) through which global competencies could be offered.
  • Rethink the way global and international education can remain relevant throughout a learner’s lifetime.
  • Consider accessibility to global learning across a broad and diverse spectrum of learners.
  • Use data to reimagine and inform the student reality.

Working in partnership with the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA), ACE co-hosts the Collaborative for faculty and administrators to come together as a learning community to address challenges, share ideas, and help one another implement comprehensive internationalization strategies. 

The Collaborative meets in conjunction with AIEA’s Annual Conference. Registration for AIEA is separate, and Collaborative participants are encouraged to attend both events.
