About the Conference

Join leaders and practitioners of higher education, business, government and students in one of Mexico’s safest and most picturesque cities for CONAHEC’s 14th North American Higher Education Conference!
CONAHEC's conference "International Higher Education Collaboration: Empowering Societies in an Era of Transformation" will take place from October 12-14, 2011 at the Cultural Complex of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla in Puebla, Mexico.

This exciting event will focus on how higher education institutions can better pool their strengths and resources and improve our international collaboration in order to empower our societies to be prepared for future challenges. While higher education institutions have been at the cutting edge of many technological developments, and have served as spaces for our communities to grow and develop, the road ahead is full of challenges if we are to create fairer, more equitable and more prosperous communities which together are prepared for anything the future holds.
CONAHEC extends a special invitation to representatives of higher education institutions and organizations from Central America and the Caribbean to participate in this conference due to the dynamic growth and improvement of the higher education sector in the region which at many similar events has gone unnoticed. This conference will incorporate among its themes one which focuses on how to collaborate with higher education institutions and organizations in the region.

As an additional special feature of this conference, CONAHEC is taking advantage of this opportunity to convene a meeting of representatives from the community college sectors in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico and those interested in developing international collaboration projects with them. This conference will include a special section focused on international collaboration among community colleges and their equivalents.

The historic center of the city of Puebla has long been recognized by UNESCO as cultural patrimony of humanity for its stunning architecture, much of which originates in the 16th century shortly after European arrival.  In addition to this unparalleled context, we are proud to announce that the conference itself will be held at the Complejo Cultural Universitario of the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla. This collection of architecturally astonishing and interactive spaces represents the university’s deep commitment to society and ranks among the best community and meeting spaces in the country.

The 14th North American Higher Education Conference is organized by the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration. CONAHEC links higher education institutions from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, and from the rest of the world.
