Dear IIENetwork Members, 

All of us at the Institute of International Education wish you a peaceful and happy holiday season. Thank you for all you do throughout the year to help students, scholars, and other individuals around the world gain valuable international experience. We appreciate your membership in the IIENetwork, and we are particularly grateful to all those campuses who have taken part in our international partnership programs, hosted threatened scholars through the IIE Scholar Rescue Fund, offered emergency assistance for students from Syria, or partnered with us on the many scholarship and fellowship programs we have the privilege to administer for our sponsors.
 
We are also grateful to each and every IIENetwork member for expanding the role of international education on their campus and making it possible for students from more diverse backgrounds and those in underrepresented fields to participate in study abroad. Globalization brings with it the demand for a workforce that possesses knowledge of other countries and cultures and is competent in languages other than English. Our special thanks goes to the 450 partners who have joined IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative this year and pledged specific, actionable goals and tangible financial commitments that will contribute significantly to IIE’s ambitious goal of doubling the number of American students who study abroad by the end of the decade. Studying abroad is one of the best ways American college students can acquire international experience necessary to succeed in today's global marketplace.

We look forward to working with you in the coming years to make this vision a reality.

Allan E. Goodman, 

President and CEO
