It is an exciting day at the IIE Center for Academic Mobility Research and Impact. We are releasing the first findings of our ten-year longitudinal study of the Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program (IFP). The report Social Justice and Sustainable Change: The Impacts of Higher Education contributes to research and policy dialogue about the potential long-term impacts of an international fellowship program like IFP.
Unprecedented in its size and scope, the IFP Alumni Tracking Study explores the impacts of IFP on its more than 4,300 alumni, and the communities in which they live and work. This study has positioned IIE to be at the forefront of research that links higher education to broader social change.
Earlier this year IIE's Center for Academic Mobility Research (CAMR) hosted a roundtable on program evaluation and impact assessment. We brought together practitioners and researchers from various fields of study to discuss ways to measure impact of international fellowship programs. I was pleased to greet participants from the Ford Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, Social Science Research Council, German Academic Exchange Service, and others at the event held in IIE’s New York office.
For more than nine decades, the Institute of International Education has been at the forefront of international education. The Opening Minds blog is IIE’s take on how this field continues to change. Here the Institute’s leaders will explore international educational exchange, global student mobility, institutional partnerships, international development, and other topics and trends that are shaping higher education around the world.
