• Workshop Series Builds Collaboration Between U.S. and French Institutions

    On July 15, AASCU cohosted a webinar—“Higher Education Internationalization, Development of New Partnership Models”—with the Embassy of France in the United States. The program focused on addressing specific topics related to partnership-building between U.S. and French universities at various levels and across modalities.

    More than 90 French and U.S. institutions participated. The attendees then split into facilitated workshops to explore different topics, including short-term study abroad programs, led by Stephen Ferst, executive director of the Center for Global Engagement at AASCU member College of Staten Island, The City University of New York.
