Internationalization is a major goal for most higher education institutions. Often, the recruitment of international students is seen as the priority. However, recruiting students is only one aspect of truly embracing internationalization. This interactive panel will discuss the often ignored strategies needed to address the learning environment: student experiences and academic faculty perspectives. The presenters will openly share their research, experiences, and programmatic challenges to outline key principles essential for creating sustainable internationalization. Thr session will use dialogic learning to both present and engage participants to collectively suggest solutions for moving internationalization beyond recruitment.
