This was my first presentation in absentia. I was scheduled to present at the 2014 CCID Conference in late February about Creating and Maintaining Productive and Effective Partnerships for community colleges, along with my distinguished colleagues, but wasn’t able to attend. Below is the abstract and list of presenters. Follow this link to download a PDF version (2.4MB) of the PowerPoint presentation. Thanks to my friend and colleague, Judy Irwin, for representing me.
Partnering with reputable international educational consulting companies is an effective way to boost international recruitment, develop new partnerships (faculty/student exchange, in-country training, articulation programs), and safeguard the interests of higher education institutions and their international students. This session describes different ways of screening and evaluating prospective partners. Panelists include representatives from an organization promoting professional recruitment standards and ethical principles; a community college working with agents and a leader in best practices; and a full-service educational consulting company working with both institutional ( U.S. colleges and universities) and individual clients (students and parents).
