Transforming Global Partnerships

Increasingly, as a society we participate in joint research and teaching activities, which include global exchange of students, staff, and faculty. Engaging in this work helps identify and address topics with worldwide importance. In this special issue, we showcase examples of international experiences that demonstrate making a positive impact, collaboration, reciprocity, and/or social responsibility. This includes undergraduate and graduate level experiences, programs, and partnerships.
