without consulting with and obtaining the support of faculty and staff. Faculty and staff “buy-in” is essential in establishing any new partnership in the Gulf. Without such support, such initiatives are doomed to fail. Even with such support, of course, there should be concern about the possibility that only senior employees will participate or that those involved will lose interest after the initial excitement has waned. Public relations: U.S. universities must be able to articulate the reasons for establishing campuses abroad, particularly in the Gulf. Criticisms concerning human rights violations will inevitably be leveled about the host country. Some universities attempt to calm the uproar by stating their aim is to assist these countries in addressing such challenges. While such engagement is desirable, it is also important to state that using a litmus test to decide which countries U.S. institutions will partner with is counterproductive. Other universities are also certainly capable of employing such standards when considering collaboration with the United States. security: Risks in the Gulf about the safety of students, faculty, and staff are open to debate, but U.S. universities must be able to respond to perceived and real concerns about health and safety. For example, establishing a campus in a country where there is

a U.S. State Department Travel Warning exposes personnel to various risks and requires universities to take on an increased level of liability. Risk management issues should be discussed early on, and on a continual basis. academics: Although fewer students in the United States are pursuing a liberal arts education today, this situation is of even more concern in the Arab world. Most parents and students highly value professional schools such as medicine, engineering, and business because they believe employment opportunities are available upon graduation. Particularly in private universities where students are not assigned a major, the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences are underrepresented. In fact, the only reason that many of these departments exist is because of their general education offerings. While academics can decry the enrollment decline within these fields, Gulf institutions that fail to focus on professional programs are at an extreme disadvantage. Pedagogical Issues: Many potential partners spend the bulk of their time and energy on the delivery of courses. While academic issues and the accreditation process are important, more attention must be paid not only to what is taught but how. U.S. higher education has earned a reputation for valuing the Socratic method, collaborative
