2019 Shaping Sustainable Futures for Internationalization in Higher Education Conference

Higher education has long been an area of international knowledge exchange, with people and ideas crossing borders for hundreds of years. In the 21st century, internationalization has become significantly more pronounced with, for example, huge increases in worldwide flows of students, new branch campuses opening in every corner of the globe, and leaps in the number of cross-national research collaborations and co-authored publications. Theories, policies and practices of internationalization are spreading and transforming new ideas and approaches around the world.

In the face of this continuing diffusion, the purpose of this conference is both to take stock of internationalization in higher education as it is currently evolving in Canada and around the world, and to consider the ways in which it could be shaped sustainably into the future.

The Centre for the Study of Canadian and International Higher Education (CIHE) is pleased to convene this special event which will showcase current leadership and management issues in higher education while providing opportunities for our higher education cohorts to reconnect, network, learn and collaborate. We hope that you will be able to join us for this new event!
