Staff promotion not tied to internationalisation – in USA

By Nicola Jenvey – in University World News.

Only 8% of United States higher education institutions have guidelines specifying international work or experience as a consideration for faculty promotion and tenure decisions, according to a study by the American Council on Education.

The report also reveals that contrary to stated internationalisation goals – which consider student learning as a top priority – internationally focused teaching activities are the least commonly found criteria in tenure and promotion codes.
