"As someone who teaches on the internationalization of higher education and contributes to its scholarship, I am excited about this important new book. Equipping our future leaders of international education with the tools and competencies they will need is critical for the field and beyond. This book covers many of the most important themes in today’s international education landscape and will help to foster best practices in program design and management." —Bernhard T. Streitwieser, assistant professor of international education & international affairs, George Washington University
"This inspirational, broad-ranging volume is a state-of-the-art exploration of why international education matters and why it matters now. Its seamless organization allows for the integration and connection of concepts and frameworks, and at the same time it acknowledges the complexities involved in this vibrant and fast-growing field." —Joanna Regulska, vice provost and associate chancellor, global affairs, Office of the Chancellor and Provost, University of California-Davis
"The International Education Handbook is the resource we have all been waiting for. This will be a critical reference tool for international education students, teachers, and professionals alike. It will play a key role in better linking the study of international education with its real-life practice." —Clare Overmann, head, higher education initiatives, Institute of International Education
"Each chapter is thought-provoking and encourages reflection. As an experienced international educator, this book helped strengthen and reinforce my understanding, while renewing my energy and commitment to the field." —Parinaz Zartoshty, director, international student & scholar services, San José State University
"The internationalization of higher education and institutions’ abilities to prepare students to engage locally and globally depends on international education practitioners’ knowledge and skills. This profession only recently emerged and continues to develop. Even those charged with facilitating campus internationalization may have limited understandings of the different roles and responsibilities of international education practitioners. This volume will help illuminate these for both those entering the profession and those within it. All will find definitions of relevant terms and concepts helpful to advancing students’ international educations." —Elizabeth Brewer, director, international education, Beloit College
