Booklets

"Globalization in Higher Education" is a free compilation of articles -- in print-on-demand format -- about long-term trends in the recruitment of foreign students, study abroad, internationalization of the curriculum, online education and more. The articles aren't breaking news -- they contain analysis and context about long-term trends and some of the strategies colleges are embracing. Download the booklet here.

This booklet is part of a series of such compilations that Inside Higher Ed is publishing on a range of topics.

On Tuesday, April 15 at 2 p.m. Eastern, Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman conducted a free webinar to talk about the issues raised in the booklet's articles. To view the webinar, please click here.

This booklet was made possible in part by the advertising support of Academic Partnerships.
