World's Premier Cross-Cultural Scholarly Society Moves to UAlbany
The University at Albany's School of Education is the new home of the Secretariat of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES), the world's premier scholarly society of cross-cultural study and academic achievement.
The three-year residency program will provide additional opportunities for graduate students and faculty international scholarship activities.
The CIES Secretariat, which moves from Florida International University, enhances UAlbany’s School of Education's goal to extend the global engagement of its Department of Educational Administration and Policy Studies (EAPS) through the new Institute for Global Education Policy Studies (IGEPS).
Among the active projects and initiatives undertaken at IGEPS are research on global textbook and assessment policies, educational reform in Australia, and a study of American institutions opening branch campuses in the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
The Secretariat will work with the SUNY Office of Global Affairs to help advance the reach and work of the Society alongside SUNY's global engagement agenda and trajectory.
