The American Faculty in an Age of Globalization: Predictors of Internationalization of Research Content and Professional Networks
Finkelstein, Martin J.; Walker, Elaine; Chen, Rong
Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education and Educational Planning, v66 n3 p325-340 Sep 2013
While there has been considerable policy discussion about the need to internationalize American higher education, our understanding of the internationalization in American faculty's research remains limited. This study intends to investigate the extent of internationalization in American faculty's scholarly work and what individual and institutional levers shape faculty decisions to engage internationally. The results of a 2007-2008 comparative international survey provide insights into these important issues and suggest implications for enhancing the international engagement of US faculty.
