How to pursue equity in an inequitable world

We will be focusing on three themes of international education activity that explore the extent to which senior leaders can drive equity and what they can do differently to achieve better outcomes.

1. Shaping a more equitable future for mobility of students and researchers

  • How can leaders of universities and colleges respond tochanges in mobility patterns in a post pandemic world?
  • What new opportunities and technologies for more inclusive approaches to mobility have emerged from the pandemic?
  • How can university and college leaders inspire new approaches to mobility that are both equitable and drive equity?

2. Inspiring a new model of international education partnership

  • What can leaders of universities and colleges learn from the region’s efforts to create an integrated Higher Education space, such as within the countries of the Associate of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN)?
  • Do ranking systems help or hinder the formation of equitable partnerships?
  • How can leaders avoid areas of jeopardy that lead to asymmetric partnerships and establish new approaches to creating equitable partnerships?

3. How to lead universities and colleges to best serve their communities

  • What do different countries see as the “social reform” role of universities and colleges?
  • What are the novel strategies that university and college leaders have used to drive, or act as partners in, social reform internally or with their external communities?
  • How can leaders of universities and colleges ensure that institutional spaces and policies are safe and welcoming for all groups?
