IIE Seeking Partner Organizations for Third Round of EducationUSA Leadership Institutes

The Institute of International Education, on behalf of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs’ EducationUSA Advising Network, invites accredited U.S. post-secondary educational institutions (non-profit and for-profit), U.S. higher education associations, university systems, consortia, and qualified entities that meet provisions in IRS section 26 USC 501(c)(3) to submit proposals to be a Partner Organization for the third round of EducationUSA Leadership Institutes.

Partner Organizations will develop and manage one of three EducationUSA Leadership Institutes for approximately 15 mid- to upper-level foreign college or university administrators, Ministry of Education or other government officials, or other qualified participants from select countries and world regions. The Institutes consist of intensive, short-term academic programs that provide participants with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of U.S. higher education, develop the tools necessary to build capacity within their own systems, and engage with the U.S. higher education sector in effective, sustained ways.

Applicants are invited to submit proposals to host one of the following Institutes. Each proposed Institute must address only one of the following topics:
• U.S. Graduate Education: Organization and Internationalization
• U.S. Higher Education and Industry/Private Sector Linkages
• Campus Internationalization: Structures that Support Student Mobility

The proposal is due on November 20, 2015 5:00 PM EST. To download the request for proposal, click here
There will be an informal webinar on October 30th, 2015 at 2:00 – 3:00 PM, EST. Register here
