Our Goals for 2012 are to:
- Expand the reach and impact of international education programs across the globe, with a focus on increasing the number and diversity of participants with whom we interact.
- Expand our work in underserved areas in need of international education programs and services, including in the Arab Spring countries, our work with women, international development; supporting development of new universities; and national scholarship programs.
- Increase support for threatened scholars and assist international students facing crises and emergencies, by increasing our Scholar Rescue Fund endowment and our Emergency Student Fund.
- Identify and cultivate diverse sources of funding that allow us to financially sustain the programs and operations of the Institute, and develop new IIE initiatives.
- Support our staff so that they can have a productive and rewarding career at the Institute, while growing personally and professionally; and expand the development and training opportunities available through IIE’s Leadership Academy.
Measuring Program Impact and Results
IIE is commited to measuring the impact and outcomes of our programs at the individual, institutional and environmental levels. The examples on this page include programs supported by the U.S. Department of State, the Ford Foundation, the National Security Education Program, and a combination of public and private funds. They illustrate our strategy of continuously evaluating both the benefits that program activities provide to participations and the objectives that the programs are designed to achieve. To measure these outcomes, IIE engages in a number of qualitative and quantitative methods of program evaluation, including surveys, comparatative case studies, interviews, focus groups and observations.
