Sharpening Skills (Without Breaking the Bank)
Professional development doesn’t just help individual employees. Investment in growth and learning opportunities pays dividends for an institution’s international office, campus internationalization goals, and the field of international education.

Gearing Up for Growth
For international offices, diversifying revenue sources is crucial to financial sustainability as international student enrollment ebbs and flows. Smart solutions also ensure the long-term impact of internationalization.

Breaking Barriers to Study Abroad
While the cost of studying in another country remains a barrier for some students, finances are not the sole factor keeping underrepresented student groups from participating. To make education abroad more inclusive, institutions need to design international experiences that more closely align with underrepresented students’ identities and interests.
