The mission of internationalisation in HE is to foster world peace and cultural understanding. But to achieve results on a large scale, universities require strategic partnerships. This session offers a model for positioning civic engagement as a key institutional strategy, and guides participants in identifying how it can work in their own institutions. The result is a set of outcomes that allows them to position this model successfully in their existing international education programmes.
