KEI is proud to announce a new Consortium of Institutions Promoting International Education for Minorities (CIPIEM).

The Consortium membership will primarily consist of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) and other higher education institutions with a serious commitment to advancing global opportunities for minority student populations.

BioCEP is back!

The BioEthics Cross-cultural Education Program (BioCEP) is a cooperative effort by Columbia University's Center for Bioethics, Mahidol University (Thailand) and Knowledge Exchange Institute.

BioCEP is a 3-week, 6-credit summer program that combines lectures, seminars, professional visits and cultural excursions. Courses are taught as a seminar by professors from Columbia University and Mahidol University.
