Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Deadline to Express Interest in Participation: June 18, 2012

IIE’s Center for International Partnerships in Higher Education will launch two special partnership initiatives to Libya and Burma, most likely in 2013. Similar to the Center’s flagship International Academic Partnership Program, these partnership building programs will engage a small group of U.S. higher education institutions on an accelerated strategic planning process for partnering with Libyan and Burmese institutions. These programs will include a delegation to each focus country.

Interested institutions should submit an Expression of Interest Form or email Clare Banks directly.

Core Components of the Special Partnership Initiative 

  1.  Accelerated strategic planning process, including guidelines for assessing on-campus international partnership capacity and developing practical strategic plans for partnership activities in the focus country.
  2. A study tour to the focus country that will include visits to select higher education institutions, the U.S. Embassy, EducationUSA Advising Centers, Ministry of Education officials, and other educational exchange organizations. All in-country expenses for one representative from each institution will be covered as part of the program fees. Participants are responsible for covering their international airfare.
  3. A series of training webinars, focused on topics such as implementing strategic partnerships, faculty engagement, developing a consolidated partnership strategy, and higher education in the focus country.
  4. A suite of information resources on the higher education system in the focus country, and IIE publications and policy research reports.
