This event is now archived and we are pleased to provide the following event media and assets, along with the original event overview.

This session aims to delve into the contribution of the Global Engagement Index (GEI) to how UK universities approach internationalisation. The GEI is an open-access resource, attuned to the UK’s diverse higher education sector, offering insights across 30 different measures (using core data from HESA, OfS, Scival) ranging from student engagement to environmental impact. In addition to institutional-level performance, higher education sector trends are tracked over the past four years.

The session seeks to contribute to the discourse around global engagement. The discussion will adopt a holistic view of international engagement, capturing overlooked elements like transnational education and curriculum internationalisation, emerging trends and challenges in international higher education.

In a post-pandemic world, the very nature of “global” is under scrutiny. Universities are grappling with complex questions about diversity, equity, and sustainability. The session will posit the GEI as a tool that can align with the concept of pluralism in global higher education, allowing for a more inclusive, diverse approach in sync with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In summary, the session is a call to rethink universities’ global engagement strategies, their complexities and challenges.
