Event Date: May 17, 2021

Conference Dates: May 17 – May 19, 2021

Due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19, the 14th Annual Global Partners in Education Conference will once again be offered on-line. We invite teachers, technical support personnel, students, and administrators from GPE partner institutions around the world to join us for this important knowledge sharing and networking event.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Forging a Path Forward in the Wake of a Global Crisis.” While a post-COVID-19 future can be seen on the far horizon, it is undeniable that this pandemic has left an indelible mark on the future of education, especially international education. As GPE continues its mission to work with our partner institutions to prepare students to thrive in a globally interconnected world, we must be forward thinking and adapt to these changing circumstances.

During GPE XIV we will explore the continuing impact of this past year on the future of our students, ourselves, our organization, and international education more broadly. It will also serve as an opportunity to discuss ways to improve existing GPE programming and develop/introduce ideas for new programming and initiatives. Participants will be given the opportunity to share their research and best practices and will have opportunities to build relationships with fellow participants to help further international efforts on their home campuses.

Registration for this conference is free, but you do need to register to access the sessions.  Please register by May 12, 2021 so we can be sure to get you the access you need to attend.

E-mail gpeinfo@ecu.edu with any questions.

We hope to see you on-line in May!
