Call for Proposals for the 2010 Association of International Education Administrators Conference

The following call for proposals comes from my colleague Darla Deardorff, Executive Director of the Association of International Education Administrators.

The Association of International Education Administrators invites the submission of proposals for its 2010 conference at JW Marriott in Washington DC on Feb 15-17, 2010. Pre-conference workshops will be held February 14-15. The conference will begin in the afternoon of February 15 and end in the afternoon of February 17. The theme for the 2010 AIEA conference is “Internationalizing Higher Education: Essential for our Future.” As the title implies, internationalizing our campuses will be core to maintaining academic and institutional excellence across all functions of the university.

Session proposals, due September 1, 2009, are invited to address internationalizing higher education in the US and globally across the full range of university functions. Further details can be found on the AIEA website at

Specific areas of interest regarding session submission include the following areas. Internationalizing:

• Undergraduate teaching and learning (e.g., curriculum, study abroad, internships abroad, dual and joint degrees, service learning, recruitment)

• Graduate education (e.g., exchanges, international fellowships, field studies collaborative graduate programs)

• Research and discovery (e.g., multi-university collaborative research and education, joint conferences, seminars and workshops)

• Building campus communities (e.g., conferences and workshops, student organizations and clubs, international centers and houses, international education week, performances, lectures)

• Local, national and international outreach and engagement (e.g., international development with universities, state agencies, non-governmental organizations, World Bank, United Nations)

• Campus leadership (e.g. strategic planning, management, partnerships and joint ventures, risk management, roles of the President, Provost, functional vice presidents and provosts, deans, and senior international officers)

• International alumni and development (e.g., international alumni events, chapters, fund raising, student and faculty recruitment)
