What is the Impact of Inclusive Internationalization?

The Global Citizenship & Equity Education Professional Network presents its Inclusive Internationalization Summit: The Future of Transformative Learning.

Please join us for a cross-sector and interdisciplinary professional learning and networking event on the future of internationalization in higher education. The summit will highlight how higher educational institutions can advance the integration of effective internationalization through institutional strategies, innovative pedagogical practices, transformative co-curricular initiatives and the development of comprehensive internationalization learning outcomes. Concurrent sessions will share research that demonstrates the impact of internationalization on developing the global graduate as education, economies and societies have become increasingly globalized.
