HIGHER EDUCATION PARTNERSHIP CONFERENCE
Today’s world is increasingly interconnected. Workforce success requires institutions and individuals to collaborate across borders and develop new strategies for development and implementation of their projects. Professionals must expand their visions and outreach to a global scale, and interact effectively with international counterparts.
Higher education institutions have risen to the occasion to meet this demand for internationalization, leading the way by increasing investment in international education programs, and developing partnerships with peer institutions in the region. This is why I am thrilled to welcome you to the second annual Higher Education Partnership Conference, and I look forward to the ways you will strategize, collaborate and build new partnerships across borders at this dynamic event.
This year we will focus on how Innovation and Technology are being applied to expand and improve international education. Three sub-themes will complement our conference theme: Innovations in Collaboration, Peace Building and Inclusion through Internationalization, and Multicultural and Multilingual Education.
Please join us in Cartagena for HEP 2018, a conference where we don’t just talk about partnerships; we build them.
President and CEO
Building upon the success of the 2017 event, we are excited this year to convene international educators, administrators and stakeholders from across the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia to meet with decision makers from peer institutions and build strong, new partnerships for internationalization.
This year’s theme, Innovation and Technology, will allow participants to explore how institutions across the region are developing innovative programs and creatively leveraging technology to expand access, lower costs, and improve outcomes of international education. This year’s conference will also explore three sub-themes; innovations in collaboration, peace building and inclusion through internationalization, and multicultural and multilingual education. In a uniquely engaging format, the conference will provide a participative, interactive experience in which attendees get to share their own experience and learn directly from their peers from other countries.
