The Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration (CONAHEC) invites you to join us at our 17th North American Higher Education Conference Global Grand Challenges: Channeling International Collaboration generously hosted by Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (UASLP) in San Luis Potosí, Mexico from March 16-18, 2016. This year’s conference will focus on the potential of international collaboration in higher education in coordination with governments, the productive sector and civil society to contribute to addressing global grand challenges. 

Stakeholders in international higher education collaboration are invited to submit proposals for presentations addressing issues of importance to international higher education collaboration. Some possible themes include:

  • Internationalization Strategy and Policy
  • International Research Collaboration
  • International Student Mobility (including short-term, project-based and practical professional experiences)
  • International Faculty Mobility and Collaboration
  • Collaboration with the Productive Sector to Address Global Challenges
  • Innovative Use of Technology for International Collaboration
  • North American Experiences with Internationalization at Home
  • Measuring Internationalization
  • Challenges in International Higher Education Collaboration

Presentation Format:

CONAHEC prefers that perspectives from more than one country/cultural context be represented at each session on complementary subjects. If you have colleagues with whom you can submit a joint proposal, we encourage you to do so (please verify their interest and availability to attend and present before submitting your proposal). Preference will be given to coordinated group presentations involving representatives from multiple institutions and countries. You are also welcome to propose a topic alone, but in the spirit of international collaboration, you are likely to be placed into a session along with co-presenters from other countries. Concurrent session duration is one hour and fifteen minutes. Given that each session usually contains 3 co-presenters, each presenter should plan to equitably share the time with other co-presenters (regardless of format). We suggest planning for 15 minutes for audience interaction. Please do not identify people who will not attend the conference as "co-presenters" in the presentation proposal form. Those who do not attend the conference will not be mentioned in the conference program, unless they are referred to in the "Description" section of the presentation proposal form.

To minimize expense levels for conference participants, regretfully, presenters will not receive any compensation. Travel, lodging and conference registration fees and all other expenses will be the presenter's sole responsibility.

Please keep a back-up of your original proposal in a separate word processing document and send it via email to so that we can be sure that all the presentations are properly received. To submit a proposal complete the following form.

The 17th North American Higher Education Conference is organized by the Consortium for North American Higher Education Collaboration. CONAHEC links higher education institutions, government agencies and partners in industry from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, and from the rest of the world, in collaboration and cooperation. We look forward to welcoming you in San Luis Potosi!
