Events

Expand the diversity of your campus by connecting with more than 700 CIS member schools in 130 countries. As part of our shared commitment to developing global citizenship in education, CIS member universities can use our network of CIS school counsellors to connect with students who are looking for international higher education opportunities.

A variety of in-person and virtual events events present networking, regional updates, student recruitment and professional development opportunities. Feel free to contact CIS if you would like support or guidance with your annual planning.

Our adjusted 2020/21 strategy focuses on what we can do with a high degree of certainty, and on our collective health and safety. We won’t be hosting any in-person events through to August, join us instead for virtual events that ensure our community's essential conversations, learning opportunities, and networking continue. And it's a pleasure to welcome participants who were not always able to join us in person.

Our work continues to help you raise the visibility of your institution with students around the world while also supporting students applying to higher education institutions internationally.

Students at CIS-member schools who are looking to connect with CIS universities in 2021 can add their details to the CIS University Connection Registry. This registry is available to universities in the CIS Community portal where admissions representatives around the world can access the contact details for students who are interested in international study opportunities, in particular region and programmes.

Tackling Racism Workshop Series: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in our Schools and Universities

Progress is dependent on strong foundational concepts that are grounded in being self-reflective, deliberate, and evaluative. Taking time to develop and strengthen our foundations—individually and institutionally—is essential, no matter how progressive or rudimentary we are in our thinking and actions.

We can help you do the groundwork via three foundation workshops. They focus on implicit biases, intercultural competencies, and structures and systems. They are each 2.5 hours long, virtual, and interactive. ‘Story’ will play an integral part in your workshop experience as you learn and share your own experiences and expertise, and hear those from peers, expert practitioners, and guest speakers. You will explore ways to evaluate your practices and take positive action.
