  • ISAS Impact Evaluation Survey 2020 Report

    ISAS Impact Evaluation Survey Report is now available

    elektriker



    Conducted in partnership between IAU and the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College, the ISAS impact evaluation study investigates the efficacy of the Internationalization Strategy Advisory Services (ISAS) and its successor ISAS (2.0) on internationalization initiatives at higher education institutions. Research objectives of this study are three-fold:
    1) To identify progress institutions have made at the suggestion of ISAS;
    2) To identify the reason for gaps between recommendations and implementation, defined as barriers to internationalization;
    3) To analyze and share results that inform the development of IAU’s future advisory services.

    Twelve of the 17 institutions that undertook an ISAS or ISAS (2.0) service participated in the study. The results show that all of them found ISAS to be useful in advancing their internationalization initiatives, which is a clear endorsement of the program on their part. In their quest for internationalization, all institutions inevitably face challenges. Overcoming those challenges requires a clear, strategic approach, one that is responsive and in alignment with the core mission and values of the institution. IAU through its advisory services stands ready to help institutions in refining or progressing their internationalization priorities built on an inclusive, fair, and ethical process.

  • New Publication on SDG 5: Gender Equality

    On the occasion of International Women’s Day, IAU presents a new publication focusing on SDG 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls

    entrümpelung graz

    Gender Equality is a crucial issue for society in the 21st century, with more than half of the world’s population being women. Around the globe, universities and other higher education institutions, their leadership, academic and administrative staff, and students, are increasingly mobilised for the United Nations Agenda 2030 and the related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 5, in particular, is receiving more and more attention, due to its crucial role for the advancement of all of the SDGs and society. IAU and the University of Bologna, Italy, SDG 5 Lead in the IAU Global HESD Cluster, have jointly collected examples of best practices undertaken by universities around the world on this topic. The publication is part of a series of publications on university actions for the SDGs, with the overall aim of building new synergies and capacities to act while informing higher education more broadly. Furthermore, it provides evidence to policy and other decision makers in order to stress the important role of higher education for the SDGs.

  • Contribute to the Next Edition of IAU Horizons

    Contribute to the Next Edition of IAU Horizons

    The In Focus section of the next issue of IAU Horizons will be dedicated to the topic Democratizing Knowledge: Open Science in a Closed World?

    In these unprecedented times, the use of digital technologies in higher education has increased massively. The question then arises whether the process of discovery and development of solutions around the world could be accelerated if scientific results and data were shared more openly. Has the current context accelerated progress towards more Open Science initiatives? What opportunities and challenges can one expect moving forward? Who are or should be the key actors of transformation in the field and what levels of action or systemic changes are required if Open Science is to move from ideal to action within universities?

    We invite Higher Education leaders to share your thoughts and opinions on the subject by submitting a paper, which will be featured in the magazine. Please send your expression of interest in submitting a paper to Trine Jensen by Friday, 19 February. This should include a brief abstract outlining the scope and angle of the proposed article. Authors retained for publication will be informed by Wednesday, 24 February.

    The articles are short opinion pieces of maximum 800 words. Deadline for submission of contributions is Monday, 15 March. More information available here.
