About CONAHEC's 2017 Conferences

Dear colleague,

This year, CONAHEC's 18th North American Higher Education Conference is prefaced by the first conference of the North American Center for Collaborative Development (NACCD), a new CONAHEC initiative with the trilateral support of the governments of Canada, Mexico and the United States.  The NACCD will bring together communities interested in specific regional development priorities.  This first meeting, "Connecting Indigenous Peoples in North America:  Crafting a Community of Shared Knowledge," will take place on June 12-13, 2017 hosted by First Nations University of Canada. FNUniv is a confederated college of the University of Regina and is located on its campus.  This conference will provide a space for those interested in higher education access and success in indigenous communities to meet and discuss issues and challenges, share successful practices and lessons learned in their own communities and discuss future priorities at a regional level.

CONAHEC's 18th North American Higher Education Conference "Purposeful Internationalization" will take place immediately after a few steps away at the University of Regina from June 14-16, 2017.  This conference will focus on discussions surrounding the motivations for internationalization at North American higher education institutions, as well as how internationalization strategies and initiatives can and do respond to these high level priorities.

All participants are welcome and encouraged to attend both conferences.  The following two websites present each conference separately, however, you are able to register for both conferences or one or the other through the registration link that is provided on each website.  You are also able to switch between conference websites by clicking on the graphic in the right hand column of each website. Thanks for your interest in our upcoming events - we look forward to seeing you in Regina, Saskatchewan!
