Higher education in the United States continues to shift from monocultural to multicultural. Part of this shift is the increased presence of faculty who have lived experiences or cultural identities connected to many parts of the world. International faculty bring rich perspectives and experiences that enhance the learning environment for students and contribute to institutional goals, particularly at a time when global engagement is being emphasized. In this workshop, we will explore the challenges and rewards of being an international faculty member and offer ways in which international faculty can use their cultural identities and experiences to 1) expose students to different worldviews and experiences, 2) expand the scholarship of teaching and learning through different lenses, and 3) create global institutions that match the interconnectedness of a global society.
