Internationalization is a phenomenon that has been closely connected with change and innovation, less so with inclusion. The goals of many national and institutional initiatives for internationalization are connected to aspirations for transformation: to enhance quality, to expand learning opportunities, to engage with new and different stakeholders.
Change dynamics are complex, presenting many challenges and opportunities. Innovative and inclusive approaches to internationalization offer possibilities for the transformation of individuals, institutions, and systems of higher education that serve the common good in meaningful ways. This event provides a forum for students, scholars, and practitioners to explore new ways to move change agendas forward in a variety of contexts.
This event is hosted by the Boston College Center for International Higher Education (CIHE) and World Education Services (WES).
This event will bring together graduate students, young professionals, key international higher education scholars, and senior international officers from different parts of the world.
