USAID to hold higher ed global summit

USAID is making plans for the first Higher Education Global Evidence Summit, a virtual event that will showcase emerging research, new data, trends, and promising practices as they relate to higher education in a global forum. Submit proposals through Dec. 9, 2021. 

Members of the research community, development practitioners, and USAID staff will explore three interrelated themes: Employability, Innovation, and Private Sector Engagement in support of the USAID Higher Education Learning Agenda.  

The event will take place virtually over three weeks in May 2022: May 3 & 4, May 10 & 11, and May 17 & 18.  Event programming consists of two half-days over the three weeks, with four hours of programming each day (start and end times forthcoming). Learn more and register here.

As part of the goal to diversify participation in the summit, proposals from individuals in USAID partner countries will be given special consideration; however all academics, donors, practitioners, and students are encouraged to submit proposals. Find out more in the Call for Proposals.
