Retired librarians are warmly welcomed to share their expertise, imaginations and experience with our all volunteer-driven group,which sports some Google backing.
The International Professors Project ( IPP ) is a global network of professors assisting emerging nations, especially in higher education. We accomplish this as academic citizens of the world, on university campuses around the globe, and also remotely via email, Google+, Skype, LinkedIn, etc.
Academic professionals and students now are part of IPP’s development .
IPP is an innovation, inspired in large part by current trends towards globalization.It uses interconnections , conultations, promotions and recruiting to fulfill its mission.
We are a technologically-oriented, hybrid academic organization, working to meet the higher education faculty and libarian needs around the world. Google has for years been generous, with a grant, a gift, volunteers, and free tools.
Helping less developed countries improve domestic educational opportunities, especially by assisting professors, is how we spend much of our volunteer time.
Spreading partly by our dedicated networking diffusion, with each participating professors group, individual academic, and university department making its own cultural, social, ideological, and technological contributions.
International Professors was also founded to create and maintain a new institutional pathway towards an appropriate and ‘developing-world-sensitive’ internationalization of higher education.
We also work to engage and volunteer for universities and professors less attached to locale, such as transnational and expatriate professors, and those academics who identify themselves as international professors.
We serve developing world professors, students, NGOs and universities
