Book Description

Grounded in research and theory, Internationalizing US Student Affairs Practice presents an inclusive framework for enhancing the intercultural competencies of practitioners, students, and faculty in institutions of higher education. This cutting-edge book explores how student affairs practitioners are well positioned to integrate internationalization strategies across student affairs divisions and functions. Each chapter intentionally incorporates theories and literature from higher education and student affairs disciplines infused with international and multicultural education. "Promising Practices"—case studies written and submitted by practitioners around the world—appear throughout the book to demonstrate practical applications in non-US settings. The strategies in this book help student affairs practitioners enhance the intercultural development of support programs and services, all without leaving the home campus.
