The Use of Networks in Higher Education

Washington, DC
May 27, 2019

A NAFSA Signature Program

Latin America and the Caribbean continue to provide diverse opportunities for strategic and institutional engagement. How can the region remain competitive and leverage collaborative networks to achieve institutional goals? How do such networks impact capacity building in the region? Do they aid in the pursuit of innovative partnerships? What model networks already exist? Higher education leaders from throughout the region will provide insights on developing effective and sustainable partnerships through collaborative networks. Country-specific breakout tables will be available for networking.
