Collaborative partners


Welcome to the first annual 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.
