Ethical shift needed in higher education to solve global challenges: Op-eds


In an article for the Georgetown Journal of International Affairs, Wei Liu (University of Alberta) argues that international recruitment efforts from universities in the Global North often prioritize economic gain over social responsibility, thus worsening global inequalities. Liu writes that institution leaders should seek to actively solve global challenges by taking more steps to treat international students as global citizens and leaders. Liu contends that universities should dedicate more funding towards cutting-edge research from Global South graduate students and develop more global education programs on campus. Kim Martin of The Pie News echoes these calls for change and notes the broader internationalization trends occurring in the US and UK. Martin adds that postsecondary institutions should internationalize their curricula, pedagogies, and intended learning outcomes.
