IIE Launches the Center for Academic Mobility Research
The recently launched IIE Center for Academic Mobility Research brings together IIE’s in-house research expertise and leading minds from around the world to conduct and disseminate timely and relevant research and analysis in the field of international student and faculty mobility. In addition to producing IIE’s annual Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange, which receives support from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Exchange, IIE’s Center also houses Project Atlas, a global-level academic mobility research project that tracks the millions of students who pursue higher education outside their home countries each year. Another key project of the IIE Center is a Ford Foundation research study that tracks the progress of the 100,000 Strong Initiative in China. Data from these projects can provide valuable background materials for U.S. institutions interested in partnering with higher education institutions abroad or expanding their study abroad offerings to new destinations. Finally, the Center provides customized research services that focus on student mobility and the internationalization of higher education. The Center also specializes in conducting process, outcome, and impact evaluations of international fellowship, scholarship, and training programs. For more information on the services provided by the Center for Academic Mobility Research and to sign up for the new newsletter, please visit www.iie.org/mobility.
