IIE launches new Center for Academic Mobility Research

The Institute of International Education (IIE)—ACA’s associate member from the United States—has recently announced the launch of the IIE Center for Academic Mobility Research. This new IIE Center of Excellence brings together the Institute’s in-house research expertise with leading minds from around the world to conduct and disseminate timely and relevant research and policy analysis in the field of international student and faculty mobility. 

The new unit provides applied research and programme evaluation services to domestic and international governmental agencies, nongovernmental organisations, corporations and foundations. Complementing this work, the centre’s policy papers and snapshot surveys rapidly capture trends in the changing landscape of international education, while its in-depth books and reports (including the well-known Open doors report on international educational exchange, supported by the U.S. Department of State) are key reference resources. The core activities of the newly established centre fall within three key areas:

  • driving policy and programme decisions through applied research and analysis;
  • fostering and disseminating knowledge; and
  • training the next generation of mobility researchers.

Congratulations, IIE colleagues, on the launch of this important new phase in your work!
