A Research Agenda for the Internationalization of Higher Education in the United States. Recommendations and Report.
Burn, Barbara B.; Smuckler, Ralph H.
This report provides recommendations for a research agenda designed to further internationalize higher education in the United States. It is based on a two-day meeting of a working group convened by the Association of International Education Administrators. Nearly 40 professionals knowledgeable about the field engaged in group discussions related to faculty and specialist development, university management, undergraduate programs, and outreach and extension. The working group then examined the types of research necessary for the further internationalization of U.S. higher education, including the development of data banks and other statistical information, specific surveys on emerging trends, impact studies and evaluations, and in-depth, social science-based examinations of a topic over the course of several years. It also considered research topics and priorities, including: (1) future private and public sector needs; (2) current status of internationalization; and (3) connecting current status to future national needs. Three appendixes provide a list of invited participants and the working group paper, and a bibliography of 19 titles. (MDM)
