During the CXLIII National Council of Rectors of the Colombian University Association (ASCUN) held on October 22, the Inter-American Organization for Higher Education (IOHE), which serves as the Executive Secretariat of the Conference of the Americas on International Education (CAIE), launched the countdown to the sixth edition of this great event. 

True to its inter-American and multi-sectoral nature, the CAEI Colombia-2019 will take place in Bogota from October 23 to 25, 2019 with the support of ASCUN and a hosting national committee, made up of prestigious Colombian higher education institutions (HEIs), government entities and private sector partners. 

Over the recent months, CAIE secured the signature of new associate members exceeding forty. This alliance of national and regional higher education associations confirms the position that CAIE has carved out for itself, not only at a continental scale, but also on the international scene, for each new edition of this event attracts major players in the field of higher education from everywhere,” indicated Dr. David Julien, Executive Director of CAIE and of IOHE.

The twentieth century marked the beginning of an unprecedented process of social reorganization and resettlement around urban centers. Looking to the future, CAIE calls upon representatives and stakeholders from the academic, public and private sectors as well as civil society to be a part of a conversation guided by the theme:

CAIE acquires a new image

Key element of brand identification, the logo offers an understanding of the evolution and the one that lies ahead of us.  

Synonymous with excellence and promise of innovation, our image has undergone a transformation.

The structure of our new logo conveys the mission and values that CAIE has upheld.

CAIE positions itself as a unique forum bringing together key players in higher education from all regions of the Americas. This image is conveyed by the abstract representation of the continent. The whirlwind is reminiscent of the dynamism and constant movement that characterize the internationalization of higher education.

The color Orange conveys a sense of movement and highlights the energy with which CAIE has triggered innovation and creativity in each of its editions.

The color Red, symbol of dynamism and action, gives strength and anchors the signature while linking the image with the brand. Further, red is the color used to represent the Americas in international events.

This new image is therefore a reflection of CAIE’s opening to a world “without borders”, like its founders intended.
