International Education & Exchange Summit:
Catalyst for Inclusion, Access, and Progress

Due to ongoing challenges related to the pandemic, the 2021 CIEE Annual Conference on Study Abroad, originally scheduled to be held this fall in San Diego, will be held online the week of November 1-5, 2021 and reframed as the 2021 CIEE International Education & Exchange Summit.

After the successful cross-pollination of ideas that came out of last year’s inaugural CIEE International Education & Exchange Summit, we will again use this opportunity to bring together colleagues from around the world who work not just in study abroad, but in cultural exchange programs of all kinds. We look forward to fruitful discussions among a diverse group of attendees, including students, universities and colleges, employers, providers, agents, governments, NGO’s, and more.

As we are deeply committed to access and inclusion, we will be offering the online conference for FREE!

Call for Proposals

The past year has been transformative in all areas of international education and exchanges. We have been inspired by how challenges to human connection have been met with resiliency, innovation, and creativity. We want to hear how you, your students, and your organizations have adapted to pandemic limitations, and how you are planning for future progress.

Submit a Proposal

The deadline for proposals is midnight EST, Wednesday, June 30.
