Sutton, S.B., & Obst, D. (Eds.). Developing strategic international partnerships: Models for initiating and sustaining innovative institutional linkages. IIE, New York, 2011. ISBN: 978-0-87206-344-0. Pages: 260.
This publication aims to be helpful for institutions that wish to build or expand linkages with higher education institutions worldwide. It features recommendations, models and strategies for initiating, managing and sustaining a range of international linkages, and illustrates the numerous ways in which international partnerships enhance the institutions that participate in them. Elaborating specifically on the U.S. experience, the new book also includes entries from such countries as the UK, France, India and Ethiopia. Finally, it contains several appendices with templates of Memoranda of Understanding and Letters of Intent for establishing international partnerships, along with sample activities for identifying partners and networking. These resources will be particularly useful for institutions that hope to form partnerships in the United States. This book is the sixth instalment in the “Global Education Research Reports” series from IIE and the AIFS Foundation. Previous books have examined higher education initiatives and exchanges in China, India and the Middle East, as well as new developments in global mobility.IIE
