The forces of change in higher education have been accelerated by the economic, political and cultural changes of the 21st century. Internationalization encompasses the strategies, policies and practices that institutions adopt to cope with, and capitalize on, this environment. And, in order to advance an institution´s international strategy and the associated benefits it can provide, there must be an effective global engagement program in place.

Join host Ryan Catherwood for this must watch interview (original air date 4.29) with Global Engagement expert, John Arboleda, as they discuss how to develop a global engagement program. Apart from living overseas since 2004, John has more than 16 years of experience in international higher education having worked across all areas of the student-to-alumni engagement life cycle. In 2013, John launched NOYO (NotOnYourOwn) Global Engagement, where he partners with clients to understand and develop engagement strategies that support and advance an institution´s international strategy. Prior to NOYO, John worked at ESADE Business School (Spain), where he served as the first Director of International Alumni Affairs, Goethe University (Germany) and started his career in education working for University of California Office of the President.

Questions posed to John:
1. What are the potential benefits of a global engagement program?
2. What are the trends, which are driving internationalization of higher education?
3. How can internationalization be achieved through global engagement?
4. What are the main “ingredients” needed to to set up such a program?
5. What are the potential obstacles?
6. Why do you believe it´s important for US institutions to have a global engagement program
