Finnish University Presidents Exploring US Higher Education Governance and Funding Presidents from 11 Finnish universities explored US higher education governance and funding on a recent study tour organized by the Fulbright Center. The five-day higher education leadership study tour included two seminars with key presenters from US national organizations and from universities from around the United States on issues of strategic management, governance, funding, development and fundraising, and site visit to five public and private universities around the North Carolina Research Triangle region. The tour provided the participants with an opportunity to discuss with expert speakers current issues regarding financial challenges, leadership structures, strategic planning and decision-making processes and the governance of universities in the United States. The study tour program including presentations and background materials as well as the delegation’s report on the study tour observations and analysis can be found on the Fulbright Center website. This is the fourth study tour orga-
nized by the Fulbright Center within the past three years in cooperation with its US partner, the Institute of International Education. Earlier Fulbright Center study tours have focused on graduate education, adult education, and international education. Programs of all tours can be found on the Fulbright Center website.
At the University of North Carolina School of the Arts the delegation met with the school’s Executive Council for a discussion on strategic management and funding at UNCSA as well as at art schools in the United States in general. UNCSA music majors treated the delegation with a trumpet quartet performance.
