Where do creating a "globally engaged campus" and addressing "equity and diversity issues" overlap? Where do these efforts collide? Do attempts to internationalize campuses sometimes obscure the need to recruit and retain domestic students of color? This has resulted in inter-group tensions between immigrant communities and native-born people of color, as well as competition for limited public and private resources in higher education. How do "diversity issues" (gender, religion, class, disability, culture, and sexual orientation) play out in a globalized world? How do educational institutions define or “count” international students and faculty as they also seek equity for historically marginalized groups? Help us to explore the challenges – and the opportunities – as we move toward more global, and hopefully, more equitable and just campus communities.
