Abstract

Globalization is a compelling force in universities worldwide. With the flow of migrants continuing unabated, even intensifying across national borders, many universities are hosts to communities boasting unprecedented cultural diversity-evident in their faculties, administrations, and student bodies. These changes have brought the concomitant challenge of forging inclusive multicultural spaces in an institution-that of higher learning-which is often expected to lead the broader society in similarly humanistic endeavors. In this volume, we hope to gain a bird’s eye view as to how such efforts areprogressing.
