Academy for International-Intercultural
Working Within an International-Intercultural Context
ICHEP's Academy for International-Intercultural Higher Education is particularly interested in opportunities to provide seminars, conferences, and residential training programs—on the leadership issues, challenges, and opportunities referenced above—which will bring together higher education professionals representing different countries of the world as well as the increasingly pluralistic and multicultural communities within these countries. In the process, the Academy will be creating a valuable contact zone which fosters the highest forms of interaction, cultural sharing, and relationship-building among individuals who differ significantly from each other geographically, culturally, philosophically, and in other important ways. Indeed, ICHEP's Academy is committed to preparing future stewards of higher education programs, institutions, and systems who are able to belong to multiple communities simultaneously and to negotiate differences effectively within and among these communities.
