2021 Conference on International Higher Education
Boston College | October 23-24, 2021
The Center for International Higher Education has decided to postpone to 2021 its first biennial Conference on International Higher Education, which was originally scheduled for October 23 and 24, 2020 at Boston College. The preliminary dates are October 22-23, 2021.
Marking the 25th anniversary of both the Center and International Higher Education, the conference is intended to bring together senior academics and leaders in international higher education from around the world, alumni, friends/partners of CIHE, as well as other scholars, doctoral students, and postdocs with an interest in the field. The event will include invited keynote presenters, panel discussions, and presentations of individual papers.
The conference will be organized around two tracks: international and comparative higher education, and the internationalization of higher education.
2020 Digital Session
On October 23-24, 2020, CIHE intends to organize two or three digital sessions featuring the presentation and discussion of selected papers. Paper proposals that have already been submitted are currently under review, and their authors will receive more information on these digital sessions. This information will also be posted on CIHE’s website.
