Most higher education presidents and provosts acknowledge the need to internationalize their institutions, yet many leaders and institutions have not moved beyond words to engage in meaningful action. To be successful, comprehensive Internationalization requires strong, informed, and skillful leaders at all levels throughout an institution—presidents, provosts, academic deans, faculty leaders, senior international officers, as well as unit leaders in charge of international mobility of students and other aspects of institutional cross-border activity.
Leading Comprehensive Internationalization: Strategy and Tactics for Action presents a flexible leadership framework for the what, why, and how of both strategy and action for comprehensive internationalization. A complement to John K. Hudzik's earlier publication, Comprehensive Internationalization: From Concept to Action, Hudzik (former vice president for global engagement at Michigan State University) combines forces with JoAnn McCarthy (former assistant provost for international affairs at the University of Pennsylvania and now director of academic affairs for INTO University Partnerships USA) to provide useful guidelines, illustrated with examples from a variety of institutions.
