Topics such as internationalizations of educational institutions, and recruitment and retention of international faculty are often discussed in short- and long-term plans of Higher Education Institutions. Frequently these matters are also included in missions’ statements, commitments in theoretical colleges or university websites. Nevertheless, some of the extra labor, or additional benefits international faculty bring to campus are overlooked or not reflected towards tenure and promotion. Although many benefits are well documented in research, there is still a part of community campus who are not aware of the extra challenges International Faculty face when they arrive to a foreign country and the additional layer f stress this adds to a regular workload.
The purpose of this essay is to provide a general awareness and overview of some the benefits and the invisible challenges International Faculty bring to Higher Education Institution, especially in predominantly white institutions (PWI). The objective is to continue to discuss the importance of highlighting International Faculty as key to the development of a more diverse campus community, but also to maintain a perspective that allows campus to strive to continue to build programs to support the success and thus the retention of this population.
