Welcome to your TIEC membership page. We are so happy to have you in our community. The best way to get the most out of membership is to be active. Use this community to help reach your internationalization goals. Reach out to anyone in Partner Finder who seems interesting. Attend events. Share opportunities with your colleagues. Need a Texas partner for a grant proposal? We can list it on our Opportunities Page, and you can reach out to partners individually. Want TIEC to manage a project for you? Send us the opportunity.
We recommend you spend a little time getting to know the resources available to you: Partner Finder, University Directory, Member events, training, funding resources, and new opportunities for collaboration. Below are 10 Steps we recommend for you to get the most out of your membership.
