Generation Study Abroad think tank

On October 1-2, 2015, the inaugural IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad will bring commitment partners together in Washington, D.C. to highlight their progress and create positive new solutions.

The Summit will feature high-level plenary debates, action-oriented sessions, think tanks and networking opportunities, as well as an engaging expo hall, to mobilize commitments and inspire new actions.

It is an exciting opportunity to engage and showcase commitment partners from all sectors, including U.S. and non-U.S. higher education institutions, the K-12 community, foreign language community, study abroad organizations, education associations, private sector corporations and foundations, and U.S. and foreign government partners.

Call for Proposals

IIE invites proposals that reflect the spirit of collaboration across sectors and sharing knowledge to highlight best practices, ideas and innovations that address these themes and advance the collective Generation Study Abroad goal of significantly expanding and scaling education abroad.

Summit sessions will revolve around the following themes:

  1. How does study abroad build a globally minded workforce?
  2. How can study abroad be redefined and rebranded for today's global economy?
  3. What is the impact of study abroad?
  4. What innovative solutions are most effective in increasing study abroad participation?

Preference will be given to proposals that include participants from different sectors and speak to varied audiences, including employers, governments and K-12 educators, as well as higher education practitioners and policy-makers.

The deadline to submit proposals is February 15, 2015.
