Institutional Commitment to Global Engagement: Cross-Cultural Reflections of Faculty, Students, Staff, and Alumnae at Spelman College
This book is a testimony of Spelman College’s commitment to global citizenship, documenting cross-cultural and international experiences and reflections of domestic students who studied abroad, international students’ experiences, Alumnae who studied abroad or have lived abroad and faculty and staff who have lived abroad or led students abroad. This book distinctively reveals life stories of global engagements that no one else could tell but the contributors who bring life experiences through their international visits. Through a well-curated and engaging collection of narrative stories, this book captures the richness that comes from crossing boundaries, understanding cultural differences, and embracing the knowledge that comes from encounters with disparate perspectives.

Internationalization at Home (IaH) has been promoted as a way to increase international and intercultural education, and faculty members are central to achieving any success with this program. This collective case study at the University of Iceland examines faculty members’ engagement and practices of IaH.
