Global Policy Fellows Program


For more than two years, the IHEP Global Policy Fellows worked to share ideas, tools, and techniques in collaborative settings designed specifically for their programmatic experience. Based on their shared experiences, they developed higher education policy models within their own countries, solicited feedback from their colleagues, and disseminated those policies even after the end of the program.

Individual fellows are listed by country, with affiliations at the time of participation:

  • Brazil—Denilde Oliveira Holzhacker, Sao Marcos University and Eufrasio Farias Prates, UPIS
  • Mongolia—Batjargal Batkhuyag, Mongolian Education Alliance; Khishigbuyan Dayan-Ochir, Ministry of Education; and Munkh-Erdene Lkhamsuren, National University of Mongolia
