Co-published with the Association for American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U)

If we are all becoming global citizens, what then are our civic responsibilities? Colleges and universities across the United States have responded to this question by making the development of global citizens part of their core mission. A key strategy for realizing this goal is study abroad. After all, there may be no better way for students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to become effective change-agents in international contexts.

The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad is a comprehensive survey of the field. Each chapter eloquently conveys an enthusiasm for study abroad alongside a critical assessment of the most up-to-date research, theory and practice. This contributed volume brings together expert academics, senior administrators, practitioners of study abroad, and policy makers from across the United States, Canada and other part of the world, who meticulously address the following questions:

What do we mean by global citizenship and global competence?

What are the philosophical, pedagogical and practical challenges facing institutions as they endeavor to create global citizens?

How is study abroad and global citizenship compatible with the role of the academy?

What are the institutional challenges to study abroad, including those related to ethics, infrastructure, finances, accessibility, and quality control?

Which study abroad programs can be called successful?

The Handbook of Practice and Research in Study Abroad is an indispensable reference volume for scholars, higher education faculty, study abroad professionals, policy makers, and the academic libraries that serve these audiences. It is also appropriate for a wide range of courses in Higher Education Master’s and Ph.D. Programs.

About the Author:

Ross Lewin is the Director of Study Abroad at the University of Connecticut. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in German Studies.

Review:

"Certainly, faculty and administrators involved in study abroad or in globalization of the curriculum will find this book invaluable. However, the themes addressed throughout are so fundamental to the heart of mission and identity that the volume will likely be useful to any educator thinking about his or her institution’s engagement with the global community."―Teaching Theology & Religion

"This is an excellent book for those of us involved in international education. The wealth of information and myriad references to programs in diverse fields reflect the dynamic reality of current efforts across a broad range of institutions―a contribution that may ultimately be more useful than a consensus definition of global citizenship."―Review of Higher Education
