The IAUP celebrates its general assembly every three years in a different part of the world. Each triennial focuses on a specific theme and provides its membership with an opportunity to discuss challenges and changes that face higher education worldwide.
In addition to a high quality academic program, participants at triennial conferences gain from the most outstanding opportunities of networking beneficial to their institutions/organizations, as well as unparalleled cultural experiences.
The International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) is a proud sponsor of the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Council on Education (ACE), from March 8 to 11 in San Diego, California.
IAUP will be co-sponsoring, with the ACE Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement, a special pre-session on cross-border partnerships between US and Mexican universities. Additionally, IAUP will be the sole sponsor of the International Welcome Reception. Both of these events will take place on March 8.
More than twenty higher education chief executive officers gathered in Doha, Qatar, from 25-28 October 2013, for the Fourth Annual WISE Program for Education Leadership. Developed by the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) in partnership with the Institute for International Education (IIE), the program seeks to prepare newly appointed presidents, rectors, and vice chancellors for the personal and professional challenges of leading their respective institutions. The program was hosted and sponsored by the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development.
We enter now into a transitional year for IAUP – with a phenomenal 2014 Triennial conference taking shape for Yokohama in June, under the talented leadership of 2014-2017 President-Elect Chancellor Toyoshi Satow and his colleagues – and the final semi-annual and regional meetings of the 2011-2014 presidency taking place in the next few months.
