AIRC Symposium 2024

An Event for Institutions, Agencies, and Service Providers


Symposium Theme: Best Practices in International Enrollment Management Partnerships


In-person, Tuesday, April 30, 2024, before ICEF North America

Niagara Falls Convention Center, Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada


Symposium Description

AIRC’s 2024 Symposium will explore the best practices in developing, managing, assessing, and sustaining the many types of partnerships that are foundational to international enrollment success. The Symposium will explore both the broad strategies and detailed workings of sustainable, successful relationships. Given the critical importance of these partnerships, this is a must-attend event for those in the International Enrollment Management field. 


Data from AIRC’s 2023 State of the IEM Field Survey shows that 

  • partnerships between higher education institutions and educational recruitment agencies are increasing and that 62% of respondents partner with educational agencies;
  • all but 2% of institutions not currently working with agencies are strongly considering incorporating partnerships into their international recruitment strategies; 
  • other types of IEM partnerships are also growing, and these include companies and organizations that provide products and services to institutions to assist with international student recruitment and enrollment.
