The Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC) thanks the governments of Canada, the United States and Mexico for their guidance, leadership, trust and support in partnering with CONAHEC to create the North American Center for Collaborative Development. The creation of the NACCD was announced on June 29, 2016 by the three heads of state, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Barack Obama and President Enrique Peña Nieto as a key deliverable which emerged from the North American Leaders Summit.

The North American Center for Collaborative Development (NACCD) provides a space to collect and share ideas to address challenging North American problems, applying knowledge from a variety of academic disciplines and ways of knowing, appropriate cutting edge technologies and innovative practices. The center facilitates in person and virtual international higher education collaboration research, publication and dialogue within North America and with partners around the world. Through the NACCD, research networks and groups of interest focus on the priority challenges of the region such as: North America’s indigenous communities, energy and climate and regional competitiveness among others.

CONAHEC also recognizes and appreciates the contributions of the North American higher education community which are fundamental to the success of this important effort.
