The internationalization of higher education can be understood, in part, as the response of universities to the transformative processes of globalization. Internationalization includes transformation of the core missions of universities as well as the systems and processes enabling the realization of those missions. It can be argued that universities are in the knowledge ‘business’. Conceptualized in terms of knowledge processes, the core missions of universities are knowledge discovery and creation (research), knowledge transmission and exchange (teaching and learning), and knowledge translation and application (service).
This Special Issue of Social Sciences will examine the nature and consequences of the internationalization of these core missions. Both empirical and conceptual papers addressing the internationalization of universities are welcomed. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
- collaboration and competition for, and recruitment of, international students, staff and faculty members;
- collaboration and competition related to research and graduate student education and training;
- innovation in undergraduate teaching and learning, including changes to programming, curricula, and pedagogies;
- innovation in the translation and application of research knowledge, including its commercialization, to social and economic development;
- transformation of the leadership, governance, administration, and financing of universities.
