U.S. Institutions Share Priorities for Collaboration with Brazil

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Last week, the Institute of International Education led a delegation of high-level officials representing 18 U.S. higher education institutions to Brazil to meet with potential partner campuses and learn about Brazilian higher education. Based on the intensive weeklong visit, the delegation has issued key findings and recommendations for furthering U.S.-Brazil educational cooperation, including the need to address language barriers, expand the capacity to host short-term study abroad students, and develop more avenues for cooperation at the community college level.

The study tour was part of IIE's yearlong International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP) for Brazil. The delegation found that U.S. and Brazilian institutions are equally committed to building long-term institutional relationships, which either expand on existing faculty relationships, or are based on new strategic priorities. Many Brazilian institutions have well-developed relationships with European institutions, and are now seeking to develop mutually beneficial and sustainable institutional relationships with U.S. campuses.

To learn more about the key findings from the study tour, as well as the priorities articulated by Brazilian educators for developing international partnerships, please visit www.iie.org/Who-We-Are/News-and-Events/Press-Center/Press-Releases/2012/04-24-2012-IAPP-Brazil-Delegation.

IIE will also offer an International Education Partnership Program for Brazil in 2013. Applications will be accepted starting September 1. For more information, please visit: www.iie.org/iapp.
