For a higher education institution’s student-mobility programme to succeed, faculty buy-in is essential. Is it possible to bridge ‘us–them’ silos amongst professional and academic staff into a ‘we’ agenda? This session will discuss how to engage faculty in your institutional goals, share effective tools for actively engaging them and teach you to demonstrate the positive impact faculty buy-in can have on achieving the targets of increased student mobility.
