Globalization and the University

 

This collection examines the influence of globalization on the university and the university's place in a burgeoning world market for higher education. What impact, for example, do the half-million foreign students studying in the United States have on the nation's universities? At the same time, this collection of student research considers domestic students' engagement with international education, including foreign language study and study abroad. How will the globalization of the university affect U.S. undergraduates' much-lamented ambivalence about study extending beyond the nation's borders?
