and collaboration to understand one another across cultures.
Increasingly, higher education institutions are making international collaboration a priority. This issue's cover story, "Degrees
Without Borders" by Charlotte West, focuses on many types of
collaborative degree programs, including joint, dual, and double
degrees, in which students can learn at more than one institution
in different countries to enable them to have a unique global learning
experience. One double-degree graduate quoted in the article touts
the experience as something that was a game-changer in his career:
"I believe dealing with people from cross-cultural backgrounds was
the greatest thing it helped in my current career."
"The Right Prescription for Internationalization," another feature
in this issue, by Karen Leggett, also explores the theme of connection.
The fifth article in a series of articles on disciplines globalizing their
curricula to allow students to learn in a global context, this story showcases how institutions are creating international partnerships to allow
pharmacy students to study internationally for part of their studies.
"Pharmacists have potential for a large impact internationally, from
clinical service development to procurement of appropriate medications to management issues. It's time for pharmacists to be involved at
a global scale," says Stephanie Lukas, a recent PharmD graduate who
now works in Rwanda (her pharmacy education included internships,
rotations, and residencies in Liberia, Kenya, and Mexico).
Personal stories about connecting across cultures are sometimes
the most powerful way of understanding the importance of an international education experience. "Welcoming the Rain in Ireland,"
is the personal narrative of a bipolar student's positive study abroad
experience.
Other highlights of this issue are an Education Abroad column
on maximizing global competence by collaborating with faculty and
an International Enrollment column on managing strategic risk.
Lastly, a new column in this issue debuts: "Global Spotlight"
which covers a newsworthy trend in higher education in a specific
country. Its inaugural article, "Singapore's Talent Strategy," reveals
how Singapore is aiming to become a scientific hub with it's A*STAR
scholarship program, which enables Singapore's future scientists to
pursue their studies abroad.
