Nov 18
International Education Week: Inclusive Internationalization

Time 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Inclusive internationalization, as defined by the International Association of Universities, means integrating key concepts of equity, cultural diversity, social responsiveness, and mutual benefits in internationalization at education institutions.

In a world divided by increased nationalism, racism, and populism, what role do postsecondary institutions play through inclusive internationalization in building bridges, connecting the local with the global, disrupting social inequalities, and collaboratively solving complex global issues?
