  1. One of those articles in particular raised an interesting point. I don’t honestly have an answer to it, but the question of “is sending students abroad more environmentally and socially responsible than feeding 6 people in that community” is interesting. On one hand, directly assisting the needy is directly beneficial and helps sustain life immediately, but education about such cultures could very well result in better programs for such individuals. Ideally, I think, a balance could be struck between the two. Hopefully it’ll coincide with a new focus on renewable energy on the part of Americans.

  2. I had a chance to go through the NAFSA reports. Overview of Global Studies Literature covers a the interests of both; the professional as well as the academic fields of international studies and international education. It's great that the convergence being happened in several sectors like growing expectation of worldwide competencies for professionals within the international business community , the globalization and internationalization of higher education; the difficulties in migration from legal, educational, and human rights perspectives; as well as the requirement for public diplomacy exchanges.

  3. Thanks for sharing this site and the scholarly research on International Education. NAFSA includes a wide range of knowledge under the international education umbrella. As the world continues to become more globally, the work published in this literature will become more valued.

  4. Collaboration two different universities especially from different countries are very necessary in present scenario of globalized education system. Recent collaboration, which is going to be between Maharaja Sayajirao University and University of South Florida is great for future of Indian student. This collaboration enhances the relation of two great countries through their education system.
