Bernhard Streitwieser’s research looks comparatively at the impact of globalization on the internationalization of higher education. He has three main focus areas:

  • Mobility: research on study abroad, international student exchange, and the professional identity of ‘scholar-practitioners’ managing international education
  • Integration: research on the integration of migrants and refugees into higher education, with a geographic focus on Europe (Germany in particular) and the United States
  • Competition: research on international branch campuses and education hubs

Dr. Streitwieser earned his PhD in International and Comparative Education from Columbia University, Teachers College, his MS in Applied Linguistics from Georgetown University, and his BA in International Relations and Minor in Spanish from the University of Virginia.

From 2010-2013 Dr. Streitwieser was a visiting professor at Berlin's Humboldt Universität, where he also served in 2012-2013 as Interim Department Chair for the Department of Comparative Education. At the HU he lectured on the internationalization of higher education, student identity development, and global mobility and conducted research funded by the Fulbright Commission and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) on the EU’s Erasmus Mobility Programme. From 2002-2010 Dr. Streitwieser was an Associate Director and Senior Researcher at Northwestern University's Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, and a Lecturer in the School of Education and Social Policy. From 2006-08 he was also the Associate Director of Northwestern’s Study Abroad Office.

Before his time at Northwestern, Dr. Streitwieser was a guest researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut für-Bildungsforschung in Berlin and also a Research Analyst at American Institutes for Research in Washington, DC.

In 2014 Dr. Streitwieser published an edited book on Internationalisation of Higher Education and Global Mobility for the Oxford Studies in Comparative Education series, and in 2016 he published a second edited book, International Higher Education’s Scholar-Practitioners: Bridging Research and Practice, for Symposium Books.

Dr. Streitwieser's publications have appeared in books by Peter Lang, Palgrave-Macmillan, Springer, Routledge, Teachers College Press, Sense, Symposium, IGI Global Press, the Schneider Verlag, and the Verlag Dr. Kovac, and in the journals Higher Education, Journal of Innovative Higher Education, International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, Research in International and Comparative Education, Journal of the Knowledge Economy, Educational Research & Evaluation, European Education, and the American Journal of Evaluation.

In 2016 Dr. Streitwieser won a research grant from the International Education Research Foundation for his study on “German Higher Education and Credentialing Newly Arrived Immigrants,” focusing on Syrian and other newly arrived refugees integrating into German higher education. His research for this work included taking GW students on a study tour to Berlin and Bonn in June 2016, where they met with 15 policy makers and researchers at ministries, institutes, foundations and universities; a return data collection trip in January 2017 included interviews with refugee students as part of a Berlin-based research group; a third data collection trip is planned to Germany in Summer of 2017. Dr. Streitwieser most recently presented his research on refugee integration at a conference he organized for the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation on migration on October 22, 2016; at a research symposium he organized with invited experts at GW on March 23, 2017; on June 22nd at the Summer Seminar “International Education in a New Political Environment” at Boston College’s Center for International Higher Education and with World Education Services; and he presented on "Insights from Research on Germany" for the United Nations Institute for Research and Training's (UNITAR) meeting of the University Alliance for Refugees and At-Risk Migrants (UARRM) in New York City at the SUNY Global Center on November 29, 2017.

On February 20th he presented a paper, "Crisis or Opportunity? The Response of German Higher Education to the Refugee Influx" for the University of Virginia Law’s 67th Annual International Law Symposium and its panel on International Responses and Solutions to the Global Refugee Crisis.

Berlin Refugee Research Group, BRRG
The Berlin refugee Research Group studies pathways, hindrances and opportunities fostering refugee access to and integration into German universities. Its current project focuses on Berlin’s research universities and universities of applied sciences. Current research will be profiled in a forthcoming chapter in Migrants, Refugees and Global Challenges in Higher Education (Peter Lang Publishers). The next phase of the project will involve interviews with refugee students entering German higher education (Summer 2018). The team is applying for funding to support additional data collection. Members of the team are: Bernhard Streitwieser, George Washington University, Maria Anne Schmidt, Hochschule fuer Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, Katharina Marlen Gläsener, Beuth Hochschule für Technic Berlin, and Lukas Brück Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
University Alliance for Refugees and at-Risk Migrants, UARRM

The UARRM is committed to mobilizing greater attention for and support from university campuses in the United States for the protection and empowerment of refugees and at-risk migrants, and works with interested partners inside and outside of the Academy to raise awareness, take action, and spring-board promising initiatives. Its members consist of representatives from government, NGOs, think tanks, and a wide and growing diversity of universities.

In the News

GSEHD student Ingrid Hall (master's, International Education) published an article with World Education News and Reviews entitled, "Confucius Institutes and U.S. Exchange Programs: Public Diplomacy Through Education." This article compares the histories, practices, and motives of educational public diplomacy in China and the United States, focusing on language education and comes out of the work from her class with Dr. Bernhard Streitwieser.

Dr. Bernhard Streitwieser presented two papers at the Comparative and International Education Society meeting in Mexico City on March 27 and 28: "Research Partnerships, Not Neocolonialism: the German Max Planck Society’s Policy in Latin America," and "The Potential and Reality of New Refugees Entering German Higher Education: The Case of Berlin Institution.” Both papers are based on recent publications. He also served as a mentor at a career advising expo for new scholars.

International Education Program faculty, students, and alumni represented GSEHD at the Comparative and International Education Society Conference in Mexico City. Participants included: Heidi Gibson, Dr. Laura Engel, Clark Boothby, Janet Gao, Jeffrey Coupe, Elizabeth Solem, Erik Child, Dr. James Williams, Dr. Meggan Madden, Ingrid Hall, Dr. Bernhard Streitwieser, Sadaf Asrar, Kavita Meengama, Kelsey Sherbondy, Hafsa Alvi, Sabrina Curtis, Jisun Jeong, Tory McKillop, Justin Rotundo, Aishwarya Khurana, Patrick Young and Wajiha Saqib.

Dr. Bernhard Streitwieser hosted a group of academics and journalists from India for the U.S. Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), State’s premier exchange program for current and emerging foreign leaders here for short-term visits to meet American counterparts. The group was in Washington for the project, “Furthering US-India Relationship through Higher Education.”

Dr. Bernhard Streitwieser led a panel discussion last Wednesday, February 21, 2018 about the University Alliance for Refugees and At-risk Migrants at the annual conference of the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) in Washington, DC.
