Internationalization is no longer an option in our already globally interconnected society. It is an imperative for Higher Education Institutions which are educating young people to become global citizens and which are hosting students and faculty from around the world. Internationalization is by definition comprehensive and should cover all dimensions of the mission of higher education institutions. However, the 21st century brings new challenges and we are already witnessing the backlash of globalization. The Academy is more than ever pressed to prove its transformational role and its impacts on society. Students, faculty, leadership and staff are eager to make the world a better place, starting with their own communities. New technologies and approaches are available and being implemented in society and in our educational institutions. In this context, we have a golden opportunity to rethink and redefine Comprehensive Internationalization and the leaders’ roles in meeting the expectations of the global generation.
