Letter to the Field

Embrace diverse perspectives

“As the field grows, there are more and more different perspectives that are represented. But that in itself is a lot of work, let alone knowing and understanding faculty issues and understanding students, nobody can really do all of that.” – Gerardo

Engage with the Global South

“From the start, it has been always very much engaged with the Global South, and that has always been part of my approach in internationalization.” – Hans

Evolve leadership to new realities

“We have shifted from a one director structure to a distributed leadership structure. We say this all the time, the center is the network… the network is going to continue no matter what. “ – Rebecca

Foster inclusive growth

“One of the ways that the field has grown has been actually the creation of higher education centers, that study higher education domestically, but in places where they haven’t done it before.” – Rebecca

Advocate without owning

“How do we advocate, how do we push for something without owning it? I never would want to be the person that owns or gatekeeps knowledge on a particular area… Because once you own it, you limit new possibilities.” – Gerardo
