Part of the Global Perspectives on Higher Education book series (GPHE)


In late 2011, the American Council on Education’s Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement released its report, Strength through Global Leadership and Engagement: U.S. Higher Education in the 21st Century. The report noted, “In the 21st century, higher education is explicitly, and fundamentally, a global enterprise,” and further that, “A prerequisite for success in this new era will be active, ongoing engagement on the part of colleges and universities in the United States with institutions around the world” (ACE 2011).
