Student Affairs and Offshore Branch Campuses: A Case Study of Practitioner Experiences
Cicchetti, Kaitlin Oyler; Park, Minkyung
Journal of College Student Development, v59 n2 p238-242 Mar-Apr 2018
Internationalizing higher education is increasingly recognized as an important element of higher education today. Institutions want to produce graduates who are global citizens, and therefore attempt to strengthen their position in the global marketplace by internationalizing the campus community through the research, teaching, and service functions of the institution (Wildavsky, 2010). As a way to increase internationalization efforts, the establishment of "offshore branch campuses"--educational facilities that provide students the opportunity to receive face-to-face instruction in a country different than that of the host institution--has become more popular since the turn of the century. This study focuses on the Incheon Global Campus (IGC) in South Korea, which provides a unique consortium model of an international education hub that can offer a microcosm for examining student affairs practice in an offshore branch campus. Specifically, the research questions were: (1) How is student affairs practiced on an offshore branch campus? and (2) Who serves in student affairs roles on an offshore branch campus? This study fills a gap in the literature surrounding the practice of student affairs worldwide, and also provides insight into who serves in student affairs roles on a start-up offshore branch campus based on a consortium model.
