  • 6th IAU Global Survey on internationalization launched!

    The IAU has officially launched the 6th iteration of the Global Survey on Internationalization: The Future of Internationalization of Higher Education!

    The success of the Global Survey depends on the participation of universities and other Higher Education Institutions around the world.
    Take this occasion to share your perspective on internationalization in a new era and contribute to a major global research project.
    The sixth IAU Global Survey is an institutional survey. For this reason, only one comprehensive answer is needed per institution which represents the perspective of the institution as a whole. Therefore, we invite you to see this as a project and to coordinate internally before replying to the survey.

    In order to gather the necessary information before replying to the online survey, you can use the PDF version of the questionnaire.

    Once you have gathered all necessary information, you can reply to the online survey HERE

    The deadline to complete the survey is Friday 31 March 2023

  • New IAU Policy Statement

    During a time that has seen an unprecedented acceleration of digital transformation at universities around the world, the IAU is pleased to announce the official endorsement of the new IAU Policy Statement on Transforming Higher Education in a Digital World for the Global Common Good at the IAU 16th General Conference (25-28 October 2022).

    This Policy Statement outlines essential values and principles that must underpin the digital transformation. The work on the policy statement began in 2018 when an Expert Advisory Group (EAG) was established, bringing together experts and Administrative Board members from different regions of the world. This group steered the development of the statement, with numerous exchanges on priorities to be outlined and the essential values and principles common to all, irrespective of backgrounds and local contexts.

    The Policy Statement has gone through an extensive consultative process from a Membership consultation where all IAU Members were invited to provide comments and feedback, to consultation with student leaders and associations to ensure that student perspectives were well addressed; we are grateful to all those who took part and contributed to the development of the Policy Statement.

    In brief, IAU will continue to nurture a shared commitment to build a humanistic, ethical, inclusive and purpose-based digital transformation of higher education for the global common good and the Policy Statement will guide the work of the IAU in the area of digital transformation as part of its new Strategy 2030.

  • The latest issue of IAU Horizons

    IAU is pleased to announce the release the new edition of IAU Horizons (vol 27, n° 2). The first part of the magazine contains information about IAU initiatives, events and strategic priorities. The In Focus section is devoted to the theme of the IAU 16th General Conference: Relevance and Value of Universities to Future Society.

    Authors from all regions of the world, representing different institutions and organizations, have accepted this bold challenge of outlining what they believe is essential for the future of universities. The collection of 22 articles brings together a variety of different perspectives, ideas and challenges. It presents priorities and solutions from multiple angles, yet what they all share is the unwavering belief that universities constitute an essential pillar in society.

    They demonstrate the complex and intertwined processes that take place simultaneously and contribute to the continuous shaping of higher education. They offer thought-provoking perspectives and warn us that the overarching value of higher education in society reveals itself in demonstrating not only what universities are good at, but what they are good for. Although the challenges and solutions may be different from one institution to another, from one country to another, the collection of these diverse voices gives us ample indication of what is at stake for the future of higher education.

    Download the electronic version of the magazine here.

    The hard copy is sent to all IAU Members
