About Opening Minds

Welcome to Opening Minds, the Institute of International Education’s blog where IIE leaders will present thoughts, opinions, and experiences on diverse topics in international education. The work that all of us do in this field is multifaceted and constantly evolving. We hope that Opening Minds will be a space for us to examine new ideas, confront challenging issues, reflect on different experiences, and ultimately provide some insight into what we do, why we’re doing it, and whether it’s working.

IIE is among the world’s largest and most experienced international education and training organizations. We have been a world leader in the exchange of people and ideas since 1919, and our team of Opening Mind bloggers consists of leaders from across the diverse centers of excellence, domestic and international offices, and areas of expertise we have grown over the years. We look forward to addressing some of the most important issues in international education today and hope that you will read, share, and comment with us. Together we can propel our dialogue and work to new heights. 

Please send questions and ideas for topics of discussion to blog at iie dot org.
