The Higher Education Consultations of 2007 and 2011 developed goals for Faculty Exchanges between our schools. The purpose is to take advantage of a growing body of “Global Wisdom” that can be found in our teachers and professors around the world. We can take advantage of this wisdom through faculty exchanges – whether through “Skype” lectures and dialogues with a classroom, or through a visiting lecture for a day, week or semester of classes.

The ICOMB Global Higher Education School Directory is provided here to help interested schools and teachers with related information toward this end.
