Published by AIEA. Distributed by Stylus.

This new edition reflects the dramatic changes that have taken place across the world in higher education in the decade since it first was published, and addresses how they specifically impact international education and inform the role of senior international officer (SIO) today.

Declining public investment in higher education and a negative political climate have increasingly led to the commercialization of international education activities and the expectation they should pay for themselves by levying fees or seeking outside funding.

In addition, today’s international education leadership faces several contradictory realities. While inexorable trends in globalization continue to stimulate higher levels of participation in international study and exchange, its impacts – such as increased migration, global terrorism and the populist resistance they have provoked – are shifting institutional priorities from those of greater openness and global understanding to those of profitability and security.

Facing these issues and the global competition for student talent at a time of declining enrollments; the impacts of technology; the increasing diversity on campus; pressures to partner across borders; changing emphases in institutional mission; and the expectations of both parents and students in gaining a global perspective during university studies, it’s clear that the key issue facing SIOs is managing change as colleges and universities seek to strengthen, professionalize, and centralize – or in some cases decentralize – their international offices.
