Leaders in North America recognize that regional prosperity and the prosperity of our individual communities depends largely on the global competencies of our future professionals -- today's students. Government and education leaders acknowledge that higher education institutions in North America must take a more aggressive role in offering students opportunities to gain international expertise.Together, we will make concrete plans to revitalize the collaborative agenda in North American higher education.
