Winter 2023 Edition: Getting Career-Ready: Global Education and The Workforce

Research points to global education and other thoughtfully designed global experiences as high impact practices correlated with positive outcomes for diverse student populations in higher education. How can educators and administrators more intentionally connect these high impact practices with career planning and trajectory? How can we highlight the assets global education alumni bring to shaping a globally diverse and inclusive workforce, in all sectors and fields? What additional research/scholarship can be developed to inform university practices, as well as professional recruitment, hiring, and development opportunities that support diverse work environments?

Note: This publication is publicly accessible.
