UPCEA members are well positioned to help their institutions reach beyond borders that once limited access to education. Innovative models of delivery, building collaborative partnerships, and a focus on linking economic and learning opportunities, positions institutions for 21st century success. Indeed, today’s higher education institutions are looking to the future with a global perspective, seeing potential learners all over the world. Many UPCEA institutions are also actively engaged in the development and implementation of branch campuses or programs that cross national borders, hosting international delegations or forming international partnerships for professional education delivery. This dynamic environment sets the perfect background for innovative and unique proposals and presentation formats that collectively pave the pathway for the future of international higher education and symbolize educational access beyond borders.
