Central Asia University Partnerships Program

Central Asia University Partnerships Program (UniCEN)

UniCEN is a platform to create sustainable ties and increase opportunities for collaboration between U.S. and Central Asian higher education institutions.

The program supports strategic partnerships among university administrators, faculty, students, and other stakeholders in higher education across the U.S. and in Central Asia. UniCEN builds expertise in the areas of strategic planning, administration, student mobility, marketing, curriculum development, faculty support, and alumni relations.

Through UniCEN, select Central Asian universities improve their knowledge of U.S. higher education practices and implement action plans for partnerships with U.S. higher education institutions. U.S. faculty and administrators may compete for seed grants to activate partnerships with Central Asian counterparts.
