Held each year in July, the ASPIRE Forum brings together vice presidents from member universities to share presentations on their universities' activities during the past year, including reports on inter-league exchanges and research collaborations. The Forum encompasses the Student Workshop, the Symposium, and the Vice Presidents and Senior Staff Meeting.
‐ ASPIRE Student Workshop
An exchange program for graduate students, the Student Workshop is comprised of lectures and site visits based on a particular theme set by the university hosting the workshop. Participants are assigned to working groups comprised of students from ASPIRE League member universities and counterparts from European universities in the IDEA League consortium. Each group is tasked with preparation of a presentation on a particular topic to be made to the vice presidents on the final day of the ASPIRE Forum. (As the host university of the event arranges the workshop program and themes, presentation topics and other details may vary.)
‐ ASPIRE Symposium
Organized around a designated theme, the symposium brings together researchers of the member universities to share presentations and reports on research collaborations under the ASPIRE League Research Grant.
‐ Vice Presidents and Senior Staff Meeting
Vice presidents and senior staff from the member universities meet to share reports, exchange ideas, and discuss future activities of the ASPIRE League.
