U.S. and German Administrators in International Education convene in Berlin for a three day Fulbright workshop to exchange on recent developments in U.S. and German higher education, share best practices, and to discuss on best strategies to strengthen transatlantic exchange.
It is through seminars like the ones for U.S. and German Higher Education Administrators that Fulbright Germany contributes to vibrant transatlantic exchanges. Traditionally, Fulbright Germany facilitates stays in the U.S. for German Administrators while welcoming U.S. administrators in Germany. This year, Fulbright Germany is introducing a new program format for both groups to meet and exchange in depth. The common goal of both seminars is a frank and imaginative assessment of how to deepen and even expand transatlantic academic exchanges. Within this framework, the overall focus of both programs remains on internationalizing higher education, career services, fundraising, and network building.
For US Administrators, the seminar offers an overview of recent developments in higher education in Germany through lectures, workshops and campus visits. It also provides a European perspective during a three-day stay in Brussels, where the U.S. Administrators will meet their American peers who are participating in a simultaneous program run by our colleagues at Fulbright France.
The German Administrators represent a select group of alumni with whom we would like to discuss strategies and ways to strengthen transatlantic exchange in higher education, as well as assess both current and future initiatives of Fulbright Germany. Joining their American colleagues for a three-day workshop in Berlin, our German alumni can add important professional insight.
Both groups will thus have the chance to engage in discussions on recent challenges in German and U.S. higher education and learn from each other. Bound together by an inspiring series of experts, we trust that the participants will have the opportunity to further their professional development and establish new partnerships.
