higher education partnership conference
More than ever before, today’s employers are seeking individuals who have undergone the transformative experience of living abroad, learning a second language and building relationships across borders and across cultures. Students have taken note and are enrolling in schools that provide such opportunities.
Higher education institutions everywhere are called on to meet this demand for international education, heightening the need to continuously increase investment in internationalization efforts and expand partnerships with peer institutions in the region. That is why I am thrilled that Partners of the Americas has chosen to launch the annual series of Higher Education Partnership events and chosen Workforce Development as the theme of the 2017 inaugural event.
I am pleased to invite you to HEP 2017, where together we will plant the seeds of tomorrow’s best international education partnerships.
President and CEO
In October 2017, international educators, administrators and stakeholders from across the Americas will be in San Miguel de Allende to meet with decision makers from peer institutions and build strong, new partnerships for internationalization.
This year’s theme, Workforce Development, looks at the increasing need for students in STEM and other fields to obtain international experience and cross cultural competencies in order to be successful in today’s economy. The conference will also focus on providing a participative, interactive experience in which institutions get to share from their own experience and learn directly from their peers from other countries.
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico | Oct. 17-19, 2017
Join us in San Miguel de Allende, a 2008 UNESCO World Heritage Site, architectural marvel and home to a thriving Mexican cultural and art scene. With its narrow cobblestone streets, leafy courtyards, fine architectural details and sumptuous interiors, San Miguel de Allende is arguably the prettiest town in Mexico. We look forward to seeing you in San Miguel!
Partners of the Americas encourages you to submit a session proposal for the 2017 edition of Higher Education Partnership: Internationalization in the Americas. Join us to share your strategies, initiatives and activities, as well as to meet and build strategic partnerships with peers from around the hemisphere.
Hotel Real de Minas Ballroom
Join Partners of the Americas in celebrating this inaugural Higher Education Partnership event! Start the evening with an equestrian show and a bullfight exhibition in the traditional Mexican style. Don’t worry – the bull leaves the party safe and sound. From the arena, head to the Ballroom to enjoy locally crafted cocktails and libations and a sumptuous three course dinner.
Join us for this truly special evening of dining, cultural entertainment, music and networking. Conference registration includes admission to the Gala Evening. Additional tickets may be purchased online until September 19th.
A different conference in which we don`t just talk about partnerships;
we build them.
