American Universities in a Global Market by Charles T. Clotfelter.  Publication Date: 2010
 
American Universities in a Global Market examines the various factors that contributed to America’s success in higher education, including openness to people and ideas, generous governmental support, and a tradition of decentralized friendly competition.

Becoming World Wise: A Guide to Global Learning by Richard Slimbach. Publication Date: 2011
 
As world travel is growing exponentially, “alternative” travel has grown apace: from ecotourism, gap years, short-term mission trips, cultural travel-study tours, and foreign language study, to college-level study abroad, “volunteerism”, and international service-learning. This book is intended to help the new generation of ethical and educational travelers make the most of their international
experience, and show them how to broaden their cultural horizons while also making a contribution to their host community. ​Becoming World Wise offers an integrated approach to cross-cultural learning aimed at transforming our consciousness while also contributing to the flourishing of the communities that host us. While primarily intended for foreign study and service situations, the ideas are just as relevant to intercultural learning within domestic settings. In a globalized world, diverse cultures intermingle near and far, at home and abroad.

Alumni Relations can offer guidance and insight. It also includes a wealth of information about best practices being implemented by independent schools, colleges, universities and business schools around the world. These concrete examples look closely at managing from a distance, student-alumni programs, programming with faculty and signature programs.

Publication Date: 2011
 
This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the ability of America’s higher education system to position the country for competitiveness in a global economy, about its failure to broaden access and participation, or to respond to calls for accountability, and specifically about whether it is ready to address the
redoubtable challenge that Bologna Process represents on all these issues.  Paul Gaston assesses the Process’ accomplishments, weighing its strengths and weaknesses, and evaluates which features pose a threat, which we can learn from,​ and which may be inappropriate for our system of higher education.
 
This book provides study abroad educators with a theoretical framework and examples of practice to craft more meaningful activities that will make a long-term difference in the quality of student experiences, and set the stage for transformative change.

Developing Strategic International Partnerships: Models for Initiating and Sustaining Innovative Institutional Linkages by Institute of International Education and Editors: Susan Buck Sutton and Daniel Obst. Publication Date: 2011
 
International collaboration has become integral to higher education in the 21st century, and perhaps nowhere is this more apparent than in the recent proliferation of international partnerships among colleges and universities. In this book, experts and practitioners from a wide range of higher education institutions and organizations capture the
current dynamism and broadened scope of international academic partnerships. This book compiles a panorama of mutually beneficial partnership programs from across the globe, and features recommendations, models, and strategies for initiating, managing, and sustaining a range of international linkages. It also illustrates the myriad ways in which international partnerships enhance, and transform, the institutions that participate in them, aiding in long-term goals of campus internationalization and preparing students for entry into the global workforce.
 
This book significantly advances discussion of the mission of higher education in today's multicultural environment and global economy. It sets out the challenges and considerations that must be addressed by administrative leaders, trustees, and others who shape the vision and direction of the institution-but most particularly by academic deans and faculty.
 
Student mobility is the most important factor in the internationalization of higher education. In this book, existing assumptions will be questioned: that mobility is primarily South-North and North-North, and that South-South flows are rather marginal; that the economic rationale has become so dominant that there are nearly no other motives to be found anymore; and that the growing
presence of national and international providers of higher education, and opportunities for distance education, reduce the need for international student mobility.
Publication Date: 2008
 
This book provides distinctive analysis of the full range of expressions in global education at a crucial time, when international competition rises, tensions with American foreign policy both complicate and motivate new activity, and a variety of innovations are taking shape.

global education, including curriculum, study abroad, international students, collaborations and branch campuses, while dealing as well with management issues and options. The book deals with core principles that must guide global educational endeavors, and with problems and issues in the field in general as well as in specific functional areas. Higher education professionals will find that this book serves as a manageable and provocative guide, in one of the most challenging and exciting areas of American higher education today.​ ​

Publication Date: 2010 
 
In The Great Brain Race, former U.S. News & World Report education editor Ben Wildavsky presents the first popular account of how international competition for the brightest minds is transforming the world of higher education—and why this revolution should be welcomed, not feared. Every year, nearly three million international students study outside of their home countries, a 40%
increase since 1999. Newly created or expanded universities in China, India, and Saudi Arabia are competing with the likes of Harvard and Oxford for faculty, students, and research preeminence. Satellite campuses of Western universities are springing up from Abu Dhabi and Singapore to South Africa. Wildavsky shows that as international universities strive to become world-class, the new global education marketplace is providing more opportunities to more people than ever before.
A Guide to Internationalization for Chief Academic Officers by Barbara Hill, Madeleine Green. Publication Date: 2008
 
Derived from four years of engagement with chief academic officers (CAOs) from 50 different institutions on leading higher education internationalization, this publication presents ways to assess the institutional context for internationalization and to choose appropriate leadership strategies to effect positive change. The essay is framed so that the CAO of any institution, regardless of
sector, size, or affiliation, can find useful advice about the processes and content of internationalization.

Publication Date: 2008
 
Internationalization is a pervasive force shaping and challenging higher education as it faces the new realities and turbulence of globalization. In a thoughtful and provocative way, this book provides a critical perspective on the rationales, benefits, risks, strategies, and outcomes of internationalization. A look at the diversity of approaches to internationalization across institutions and countries around the world emphasizes that “one size
does not fit all” when it comes to integrating international and intercultural dimensions into the teaching, learning, research, and service functions of higher education. This book will help you understand the increasing complexities of internationalization and the current controversial issues related to quality assurance, accreditation, trade agreements, commercialization, competitiveness, research, cultural homogenization, and regionalization.​ ​
 
With the increased interest in study abroad from government, educators, employers and students, the question is: is study abroad engendering the desired intercultural competencies and intellectual development? To achieve this goal, this book proposes two strategies: structure study abroad to bridge the separation of
learning from experiential and intercultural learning; and integrate study abroad with the undergraduate curriculum. In proposing thisintegration, the editors take into account the need for institutional change, and recognize faculty members’ concerns about maintaining the integrity of the curriculum, teaching in areas outside their expertise, and keeping up with ever-evolving institutional missions.
International Service Learning: Conceptual Frameworks and Research edited by Robert G. Bringle, Julie A. Hatcher, Steven G. Jones. Publication Date: October 2010
 
International Service Learning (ISL) borrows from the domains of service learning, study abroad, and international education to create a new pedagogy that adds new and unique value from this combination. It is a high-impact pedagogy with the potential to improve students’ academic attainment, contribute to their
personal growth, and develop global civic outcomes. The service experience develops reflection while shedding light on and providing an added dimension to the curricular component of the study abroad course. The international education component further broadens students’ perspectives by providing opportunities to compare and contrast North American and international perspectives on course content.

The SAGE Handbook of Intercultural Competence edit by Darla K. Deardorff. Publication Date: August 2009
 
Bringing together leading experts and scholars from around the world, this Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the latest theories and research on intercultural competence. It will be a useful and invaluable resource to administrators, faculty, researchers, and students
 
Taking his cue from students of universities, change and internationalization, former AIEA President John Heyl brings the prospects for the Senior International Officer (SIO) into contemporary focus. His starting point is the contradiction that change is now seen as “a positive good to be embraced by leadership and cultivated in organizational culture” but that SIOs are rarely trained in managing or leading change. The converging demands of globalization, the privatization of public higher education,
and the spread of the Internet, however, all force SIOs to take advantage of new levers for change on their campuses. The monograph provides guidance to SIOs as they strive to effect change across their institution, change that positions their college or university and its graduates to become more global in orientation. Moving back and forth between theory and practice –including reflections by nationally recognized SIOs-Heyl discusses strategies for managing campus coalitions and the “big picture” issues of globalization and post-9/11 realities.

When the World Calls: The Inside Story of the Peace Corps and Its First Fifty Years by Stanley Meisler. Publication Date: February 2012 
 
When the World Calls is the first complete and balanced look at the Peace Corps’s first fifty years. Revelatory and candid, journalist Stanley Meisler’s engaging narrative exposes Washington infighting, presidential influence, and the Volunteers’ unique struggles abroad. He deftly unpacks the complicated history with sharp analysis and memorable anecdotes, taking readers on a global trek
starting with the historic first contingent of Volunteers to Ghana on August 30, 1961. In the years since, in spite of setbacks, the ethos of the Peace Corps has endured, largely due to the perseverance of the 200,000 Volunteers themselves, whose shared commitment to effect positive global change has been a constant in one of our most complex—and valued—institutions.
