Each year, Global Partners in Education holds two conferences: The Global Partners in Education Annual Conference and the Global Issues Virtual Research Conference.
The Global Partners in Education Annual Conference is hosted by a different GPE partner institution each year in early to mid-May. This conference gives individuals from GPE member institutions the opportunity to come together to share their experience, research and best practices related to virtual exchange. It also provides an opportunity to discuss new initiatives and ways to improve upon existing programs. Most importantly it provides an opportunity for individuals at GPE partner institutions the opportunity to congregate and network to identify and develop further collaborations.
