Events & News

We host a wide range of virtual and in-person events, including monthly webinars, the CIHE Biennial Conference on International Higher Education, and events organized jointly with our global partners—including the annual WES-CIHE Summer Institute for early career researchers.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, CIHE has made the difficult decision to postpone our first biennial Conference on International Higher Education for another year.

We hope to welcome you in June 2023. Please check back in Summer 2022 for further information about the conference, including the conference call for proposals.

Webinars & Lecture Series

All events are in Eastern Time. Webinars require a free Zoom account to join.
