Higher education needs a new, holistic assessment of global learning.

The studies in this edited volume investigate not just student learning, but also faculty experiences, program structures, and pathways that impact global learning.

Showcasing recent, multi-institutional research related to global learning, this book expands the context of global learning to show its antecedents and impacts as a part of the larger higher education experience.

Chapters look at recent developments such as short-term, off-campus, international study and certificate/medallion programs, as well as blended learning environments and undergraduate research, all in the context of multi-institutional comparisons.

Global learning is also situated in a larger university context.

Thus, there is a growing need for bridging across disciplinary and administrative silos, silos that are culturally bound within academia.

The gaps between these silos matter as students seek to integrate off- and on-campus learning, and it is up to the academy to mind those gaps.
