IAU 14th General Conference: Higher Education and the Global Agenda: Alternative Paths to the Future
The IAU 14th General Conference, 27-30 November 2012, will be held in San Juan, Puerto Rico, co-organized and hosted by the InterAmerican University of Puerto Rico. It has, as its overall theme, Higher Education and the Global Agenda: Alternative Paths to the Future. Speakers and participants will examine how higher education and research are addressing the ‘global agenda’, including the critical issues facing humanity. At the same time, major questions that face higher education institutions themselves, such as the pressure for internationalization and the constraints and opportunities presented by current funding models, will be discussed as these are critical determinants in the role that higher education and research might play in the future.
The IAU General Conference, a major event in the life of the Association, will offer participants both a stimulating thematic programme and interactive Business Sessions on IAU activities. The new IAU President and Board which will lead the IAU for the next four years will also be elected in Puerto Rico.
