Internationalization Canada

Internationalization of Higher Education is the ENDLESS …

…”Intentional process of integrating an international, intercultural or global dimension to the purpose, functions and delivery of post-secondary education, in order to enhance the quality of education and research for all students and staff, and to make a meaningful contribution to society.” as defined by Hans De Wit and others.

For me it is an endless process because it is now embedded in the regular responsibilities of the institutions of Higher Education. This process should be “intentional” at all levels of the institution and should cover all aspects of the mission. In a HEI, this mission is generally framed in three areas: Research, Education and Community Service.
