Chartering Emerging Careers in Campus Internationalization
November 17, 2012 – Alexandria, VA
Session Abstract: Global initiatives throughout U.S. higher education are propelling individuals into new territory with regard to international student enrollment, program development, administration and executive decision-making. Those appointed to such administrative positions lead the rest of the campus as they anticipate and respond to the complexities tied to internationalization.
Individuals seeking international careers on the college campus are no longer limited to study abroad, English language teaching, international student services/programming, and teaching academic courses. New career opportunities are becoming more prevalent in areas such as student life, academic affairs, administration and beyond. In this panel discussion, academic, administrative and executive career developments will be explored and redefined, contextualized by varied theoretical models of university globalization.
