The field of higher education has changed rapidly in recent decades. The COVID pandemic has heightened the importance of flexibility and availability of rigorous doctoral level education available to students worldwide who will teach and lead in higher educational institutions across the globe. As the world becomes increasingly globalized, there is a need for responsive PhD programs that prepare scholars and leaders for the future in the field of higher education. This presentation outlines a dynamic, responsive PhD in Higher Education re-envisioned for the 21st Century including: student co-authored peer-reviewed publications, international collaboration experiences, and a project-based internship. This rigorous four-year PhD program, offered by Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana, United States, will welcome its fourth cohort in Fall 2022. This presentation, delivered by the Program Director and Associate Director of this new program, will engage participants in a discussion of what doctoral students need to be adequately prepared to teach and lead international institutions of higher education in the years to come. Best practices and lessons learned will be shared, and input will be solicited. The program, and presentation, will focus on international collaboration and partnership efforts in a post-COVID environment.
