The CIES (Comparative and International Education Society) was founded in 1956 to foster cross-cultural understanding, scholarship, academic achievement, and societal development through the international study of educational ideas, systems, and practices.

CIES Conference 2008 is devoted to the theme of Gaining Educational Equity Around the World. The conference places special emphasis on educational equity within and among regions and countries, focusing on the impact of factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, income, wealth, disability, and urbanization.

The venue in New York City and at Teachers College provides a special occasion to return to the roots of CIES. TC faculty John Dewey, James Russell, Paul Monroe, Isaac Kandel, and George Bereday were pioneers in establishing a focus on international and comparative education. R. Freeman Butts, Harold Noah, and Max Eckstein were among many of the early officers and founding board members of CIES who came from the TC faculty, and the Department of International and Transcultural Studies at TC sponsors one of the largest graduate training programs in the world in Comparative and International Education.
