“Inclusion and Sustainability”
This year’s Higher Education Partnership conference will focus on how to encourage Inclusion and Sustainability in the field of international education as frameworks for cross-cultural programs and partnerships.
Considering both the social and environmental context of the HEP 2019 conference in Central America as well as Costa Rica’s successful models for international collaboration and ecotourism, we invite conference participants and presenters to engage with this year’s theme and think strategically about how programs in international education can be more inclusive and sustainable. We hope to call attention to the ways in which partnerships and exchange programs between universities, community colleges, technical schools and other higher education institutions can be inclusive of diverse participants, communities, groups, and geographic regions. We encourage a deep exploration of the term “sustainable” both in the temporal sense of successful long-term programs and partnerships, as well as the environmental sense of eco-friendly and “green” initiatives in international education.
We invite interested presenters to submit proposals that resonate with our 2019 theme, with the possibility to address one or some of the key-words below.
