NAFSA's 2015 Symposium on Leadership, The Innovation Imperative: Leading Change in a Competitive Environment, was held at the 2015 Annual Conference & Expo on Tuesday, May 26, in Boston, Massachusetts. The aim of the symposium was to guide senior international officers (SIOs) through the latest developments in international higher education with a focus on the ways in which institutions—and senior leaders—need to be entrepreneurial and innovative in the face of the challenges of twenty-first-century education. Over 160 international education leaders—more than 20 percent from outside the United States—gathered to hear speakers provide an overview of the changing nature of higher education as well as to showcase new frameworks that support internationalization efforts.
