Dr. George T. Sipos to Present at the Association for International Education Administrators Conference
Dr. George T. Sipos, the College Senior International Officer and Director of the Center for Global Education and Engagement, will be presenting at the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) annual conference in Washington, DC, February 18-21, 2018. Drawing over a thousand participants, the AIEA annual conference brings together leaders in higher education from around the world to foster dialogue surrounding the challenges and opportunities surrounding international higher education.
The conference includes highly anticipated presentations from trend-setters in international higher education that were accepted through a highly selective peer-review process. Dr. Sipos is the organizer and chair of a session entitled "The SIO and Internationalization Strategy on Unconventional Campuses." Accompanied by co-panelists Dr. Steven Hales, the Dean of International Education at the Contra Costa Community College District, and Ms. Teresa Flanagan, the Director of NAIT International at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology, Dr. Sipos will address challenges and opportunities posed by the process of comprehensive campus internationalization for higher education institutions falling outside the definition of comprehensive research organizations.
The premiere venue for the exchange of ideas among university leaders on the future of global learning in higher education, this year's AIEA Conference focuses on the theme of “The Internationalization Imperative in Turbulent Times” and promises to be a provocative, relevant, and rewarding event.
The Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) is the only association specifically for leaders in international higher education. Founded in 1982, AIEA is hosted at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina and is comprised of over 450 institutions around the world engaged in advancing the international dimensions in higher education.
