|Speech Topic||Driving Comprehensive Internationalization through Social Integration
For many higher education institutions, internationalization traditionally starts with academic activities such as English-taught programs and international research collaboration. Success in these areas quite often leads to an increased level of international activities and a growing cohort of international students and faculty members, which prompts HEIs to reflect on their individual journey in order to further pursue their internationalization ambition. Meanwhile, with the expanding size of foreign nationals on campus, interactions among individuals outside the academic setting are also on the rise. To truly embrace internationalization on campus, it has become imperative to improve the institution’s collective understanding of cultural heritage of one another so that the individuals are able to respond to the changing internationalization priority that connects to the institution’s global engagement agenda.
