Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Looking forward to the future of education abroad, 5 to 10 years out, the editors of this volume invited 10 influential education abroad leaders and scholars engaged in research on international education to share their perspectives. First, rather than focus on participation numbers, the discussion of education abroad must focus on its purpose and contributions. There is a big difference internationally in how education abroad is perceived and what it focuses on. Despite the increasing complexities in education abroad, there is genuine hope for the future. Starting with the University of Delaware and the Sorbonne nearly a century ago, university-to-university partnerships have been a key component of US education abroad. It requires intentional, well-structured experiences before, during, and after education abroad rooted in other high-impact practices (HIPs). With global service-learning, global internships, and globally focused research taking place in international settings, students have experiences with diversity where they must wrestle with circumstances and individuals who are unfamiliar.
