van de Water, J., Green, M. and Koch, K., International Partnerships: Guidelines for Colleges and Universities, ACE , 2008.
This report is the second publication of the series U.S. Higher Education in a Global Context of the American Council on Education (ACE). As the authors consider the US is facing a significant new challenge - the deterioration of positive relationships with several major regions of the world, within the current study they highlight and describe the fundamentals of planning, developing and implementing international partnerships. The publication further outlines a range of aspects institutions should take into account when establishing partnerships, including leadership, support, budget issues and the potential for long-term growth. In addition, the appendices of the publication provide sample agreements covering different types of partnerships.
The report is highly relevant, given that, as the authors write “Today’s context for international partnerships has both heightened their importance and created new challenges”.
Copies of International Partnerships: Guidelines for Colleges and Universities can be ordered via the ACE online bookstore.
