IAPP Myanmar

IAPP Myanmar


The IAPP Myanmar program assists U.S. colleges and universities to develop a strategy for building sustainable partnerships with their counterparts in Myanmar, and to utilize those linkages to build capacity at Myanmar higher education institutions. The program runs from October 2012 through April 2013 and includes: a monthly webinar series, partnership-related materials and resources, a guided strategic planning exercise, expert mentorship from an Advisory Board member, and a one-week capacity building delegation to Myanmar. This program is one of the Center’s Special Partnerships Initiatives, which focus on assisting in transitional countries through higher education capacity building.
