In 1998 a group of university people under the initiative of Prof. Dr. Josué Cortés Zárate, were concerned about the growth and quality of education at all levels in a new international context, especially the impact of globalization on higher education. FESI (International Higher Education Foundation) was then created as a response to the dramatic changes in Higher Education Institutions and schools in general caused by new technologies and the new world order that affect every human activity. FESI is a Non-profit, Non governmental organization that, to put it simply, promotes the internationalization of education, as a way to achieve social development, economical growth and better understanding among all nations of the globe.
