As director emeritus of the International Engineering Program at the University of Rhode Island, John Grandin was in a good position to provide an overview of the evolution of the Colloquium on International Engineering Education at its twenty-year celebration at the University of Northern Arizona in 2017. This article is based on Grandin’s keynote address at the Arizona Colloquium in which he recalled how the Colloquium began, who the key stakeholders and driving forces were, how other programs got started nation-wide and how the momentum grew and led to the 2008 joint NSF sponsored workshop and the Newport Declaration to Globalize Engineering Education.
