Globalization and Internationalization of Higher Education
Instructor: Professor Maresi Nerad
Highly trained people are critical for economic growth in the new, knowledge-based economies. Consequently, higher education institutions, and particularly universities, are increasingly seen as significant agents for economic growth around the world. Major U.S. funders of research such as the NSF and the NIH have begun to initiate collaborative international programs to increase research capacities at home and abroad. International funding agencies such as the World Bank and the Asia Development Bank have begun to shift focus away from sole investment in elementary and secondary education to focus also on higher education. The European Union is significantly investing in increasing and training the next generation of researchers for employment inside and outside academia.
This class will explore the impact of globalization on higher education including community colleges, and the strategies used by higher education institutions to achieve internationalization. Students will study conceptual frameworks linking higher education institutions to economic competitiveness in a global economy and critically analyze recent national and international reports on this topic.
Class meets, Wednesday 7:00 - 9:20
Miller Hall 302A
