After the great success of the Oxford and Wroxton IAUP 50th Anniversary Conference, held last May 22-24, the third semi-annual meeting of this triennium (2014-2017) will be held in Gold Coast, Australia on October 14-16, 2015. The host institution will be Bond University and the President and Vice Chancellor, Prof. Tim Brailsford and his team are ready to receive those of you who decide to participate.
The International Association of University Presidents returned to the location of its first ever meeting – Oxford and Wroxton, United Kingdom. Conference venues included Oxford University’s Trinity College, which hosted one day of the historic 1965 meeting, and Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Wroxton College, which hosted the other day. For five decades the International Association of University Presidents, or IAUP, has served as the voice of global higher education, promoting peace, mutual understanding and respect through academic diplomacy and fostering the vitality and reach of higher education institutions through energetic international partnerships.
More than 200 higher education leaders attended the international pre-conference session co-sponsored by the International Association of University Presidents (IAUP) and the Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) at the Annual Meeting of the American Council on Education (ACE), on 14 March 2015.
Our Oxford/Wroxton meeting is fast approaching, May 22-24, 2015. Please be advised that all the rooms at the McDonald Randolph Hotel, the meeting venue, have been filled out. Any members who are still interested in attending the meeting should be able to find alternative lodging at the following link: http://view2.fdu.edu/global-education/iaup-50/hotel-registration/.
We are delighted to announce that our sister organization, the Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific (AUAP,) will celebrate its 20th Anniversary in July 2015, which will coincide with the 25th Founding Anniversary of Suranaree University of Technology (SUT) where the AUAP Headquarter is housed. As IAUP member, we deem it important to invite you to this event as AUAP and IAUP are partner organizations.
