Inhaltsangabe: Internationalizing the Academy is the first book to offer a detailed look at efforts to bring ambitious and expanding portfolios of international programs to US campuses. Gilbert W. Merkx and Riall W. Nolan, leading figures in the burgeoning international higher education sector, provide a thorough examination of how numerous “internationalizing” efforts are being implemented and promoted on a strikingly wide range of campuses.
At the heart of the volume are accounts by ten of the nation’s most experienced senior international officers that explore crucial aspects of their work: the strategic visions for international education that they helped develop on their own campuses; how they worked on behalf of those evolving visions with key stakeholders, including the administration and faculty; and the main lessons that they learned in the course of creating these programs.
The result is a singular—and uniquely useful—resource for leaders and policy makers in the higher education field that comes at a time when colleges and universities are urgently scaling up their international ventures. Internationalizing the Academy is an essential account of a dynamic, centrally important development on campuses throughout the United States.

“Merkx and Nolan have put together a stellar group of US university leaders whose candid insights and experiences on internationalizing the academy will inspire and guide other leaders in internationalizing their institutions. This is a must-read for university leaders and for those who aspire to lead their institutions forward in this global century.”
—Darla K. Deardorff, executive director, Association of International Education Administrators
“This remarkable volume of essays provides unique insiders' accounts of the struggles and the triumphs of the pioneering generation of Senior International Officers (SIOs) in US higher education. The contributors provide remarkably unvarnished autobiographical accounts of their efforts to institutionalize a truly global approach to administration at a wide variety of college and university campuses.”
—Stephen E. Hanson, vice provost, International Affairs and director, Reves Center for International Studies, College of William & Mary
“This book is a valuable compilation of personal experiences from those who were Senior International Officers at higher education institutions during the last few decades. The book connects diverse SIO experiences with varied institutional pathways to internationalization, and also highlights several important aspects of leadership.”
—John K. Hudzik, professor and former dean and vice president, International Programs, Michigan State University
