The Internationalization of the U.S. Academy in Comparative Perspective: A Descriptive Study
Cummings, William K.; Bain, Olga
Asia Pacific Education Review, v10 n1 p107-115 Mar 2009
This descriptive study, drawing on a unique database, seeks to understand the current level of internationalization of the U.S. academy and what factors dispose individual academics to see their work as internationally linked. It finds that there is only a weak link between the disposition of academics to engage in international teaching as contrasted to international research. Additionally some academics do not indicate a notable disposition to engage in international research, but they do engage in international practices such as international collaboration and publishing. In sum, internationalization is a multi-dimensional concept.
