International Faculty in Higher Education

Comparative Perspectives on Recruitment, Integration, and Impact

«

"International faculty are a key global resource - and no longer are they concentrated in a handful of developed countries. They fill important skill gaps, signal the competitiveness of higher education systems, and bring vital, and creative, transnational experiences. Yet much less is known about international faculty than international students. This important and timely book seeks to change that."

--Peter Scott, Professor of Higher Education Studies, UCL institute of Education

"(This book) provides useful research perspectives on the world of international faculty in higher education and offers detailed consideration of the existing literature, drawing together a body of work which
suggests there is much more to be done here in terms of developing a full understanding of the factors and consequences of ongoing long term international mobility of academics."

--Yanyu Tan, Graduate School of Education, Peking University, Beijing, China, Educational Review
