Jordan Creating Pathways to University Partnerships
Through this project, EF aims to enhance higher education reform in Jordan by deepening and sustaining university partnerships between Jordan and the U.S. with mutual benefits to higher education institutions in both countries. Starting in fall 2016 and with the generous support of the U.S. Embassy in Amman, EF will undertake an assessment to examine existing linkages between Jordanian and American universities and create a roadmap for developing robust and long-term institutional partnerships. In collaboration with institutions in both countries, EF will explore a range of partnership models, including student and faculty exchange, research collaboration, and joint degree programs. EF will also examine the regulatory and enabling environment in Jordan for expanding international linkages. EF’s assessment will result in a set of comprehensive guidelines and strategies for catalyzing new partnerships and set a clear path for sustained cooperation.
