Jordan Creating Pathways to University Partnerships

2016 - 2018

Through this project, EF aimed 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 undertook 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 explored a range of partnership models, including student and faculty exchange, research collaboration, and joint degree programs. EF examined the regulatory and enabling environment in Jordan for expanding international linkages. Subsequently, EF issued a written assessment with a set of comprehensive guidelines and strategies for catalyzing new partnerships and set a clear path for sustained cooperation.
