Investing in People, Linking Nations: The First 75 Years of the Institute of International Education.
Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
Since its founding in 1919, the Institute of International Education (IIE) has been committed to strengthening mutual understanding and to encouraging the free flow of knowledge and ideas across national boundaries. Through the international programs IIE develops and administers, it has pioneered in the education of men and women of outstanding leadership potential in the conviction that such investment will help secure a more peaceful, enlightened future. Educational services have informed both the public and the academic community about opportunities and policy issues in international education. Partnerships that IIE has built with corporations, foundations, colleges and universities, government agencies, and international organizations have worked to mobilize resources and ensure their wise and efficient application to education. To begin the next 75 years, IIE believes that new levels of international cooperation are imperative and that its work must include not only fostering mutual understanding but encouraging mutual action as well. Looking toward the future, four key areas of focus for IIE are: strengthening human resources to build democratic, pluralistic societies, and market economies; strengthening international competence of U.S. citizens; fostering mutual understanding; and building global problem-solving capabilities.
