How can a university effectively encourage collaboration between research and international offices to manage the contractual and financial dimensions of global research projects as well as the language and cultural differences inherent in cross-national collaboration for the benefit of researchers? There is no one-size-fits-all approach but successful practices provide a useful road map. Ideally, the university will have a high capacity international research unit or centralized hub. But even among separate offices or units, collaboration can work effectively. This volume, the tenth and final report in the Global Education Research Reports series, examines the many ways in which universities can support international research, equip scholars with tools for success, engage students, create institutional partnerships, and connect with the community to facilitate research that reflects our globalized world. Recognizing challenges such as time, language, and cultural differences in project management, this publication creates a space for critical reflection and action into the internationalization and globalization of institutional research.
