Hosted by Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla (BUAP), the IAU 2019 International Conference will take place in Puebla Mexico from 13-15 November 2019.
With a view to exploring how leaders and experts of higher education institutions envisage higher education in the future, Transforming Higher Education for the Future is the theme of this year’s conference. The conference will constitute a platform not only for discussing opportunities, but also for outlining major challenges facing higher education today. Recognizing that higher education is exposed to a multitude of challenges in increasingly complex societies, this conference will, among others, consider the impact of technological advancements, and discuss the responsibility of higher education in the pursuit of sustainable development in a world where populations are increasingly impacted by the consequences of climate change.
IAU believes that higher education has an essential role to play in proposing solutions as well as highlighting the ethical dimensions and social responsibility in relation to these transformations. Research can inform decisions-makers and community engagement can enable inclusive and innovative solutions to address societal challenges. As the global association of higher education institutions and organisations, we seek to generate a meaningful dialogue and mutual understanding about advancing higher education for sustainable societies.
