IIE's International Academic Partnership Program (IAPP), an initiative of IIE’s Center for International Partnerships in Higher Education, seeks to increase the number of international partnerships between higher education institutions. Over the course of the program, institutions participate in a number of training activities focused on implementing and sustaining partnerships with higher education institutions in a focus country. They commit to forming a campus task force to work on prospective partnerships, conducting an institution-wide inventory of activities pertaining to these countries, and developing a strategic plan focused on partnership.

Contact Shawn Patton for details. For more information about IIE's partnership programs, visit the IAPP website.

IIE will guide colleges and universities from around the world through the strategic planning process in order to develop a plan for increasing academic collaboration with Mexico. Participants of the program will also take part in an IIE-led delegation to Mexico City, Puebla, and Querétaro in September 2016 to meet with important stakeholders from universities, government, and organizations that deal with the Mexican higher education system.

As relations continue to improve between the U.S. and Cuba, opportunities for increased academic partnership are growing. President Obama's historic visit to Cuba in March 2016 further signaled an easing of tensions between the two countries, which allows for greater international collaboration going forward. The Cuba Partnership Program will draw on IIE's relationship with key stakeholders in the Cuban Ministry of Higher Education and Cuban university system, experience leading high-level academic delegations, and expertise in international partnership building to provide expert guidance on U.S.-Cuba academic collaboration. The program will include a delegation to Cuba in October 2016.

*The program fee includes the cost of all in-country costs (lodging, meals, travel) for one participant for the study tour. The fee does not include international travel to and from the focus country.
