This website celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Higher Education Act–Title VI and Fulbright-Hays programs. The creation of these programs by the federal government in 1958 and 1961, respectively, marked the beginning of a major U.S. commitment to devote new attention to the world beyond its borders.

Over the decades, this federal government–higher education partnership has built a foundation for internationalizing the U.S. education system. Our Global Symposium and Global Competence Videos demonstrate the results: a world-class reservoir of educational programs and professionals with deep international and regional expertise, foreign language abilities and cultural knowledge.

More than ever, U.S. global competence is essential for responsible engagement in the world, as well as in our culturally diverse homeland. Title VI and Fulbright-Hays programs provide the basis for meeting the educational challenges ahead in creating the global competence our nation will need in the 21st century.
