Leadership in Uncertain Times: Addressing a Changing International Education Environment
Globally, the higher education sector has entered interesting times of uncertainty, where changes in national policies and attitudes on immigration, international student and faculty mobility and enrollment, even higher education’s objectives have created uncertainty for the senior international officer in how to respond effectually. A key learning objective of this Symposium on Leadership is to aid the senior international officer in developing the leadership skill of being responsive rather than reactive to these changes. Keynote and panel speakers from the United States and abroad will explore the various factors contributing to volatility in the field of international higher education. Through thoughtful analysis, rich discussion, and powerful examples, senior international officers and university leaders from around the world will hone fundamental, strategic leadership skills to guide their campuses through common challenges. Participants engage in roundtable breakout discussions to network and share opportunities and best practices.
