It would be hard to find an American community college, college or university that has not devoted serious new thought, in recent years, to some aspect— often, to many aspects—of global education. The need to adjust curricula and educational arrangements to the increasingly global context in which Americans operate is impossible to avoid. The idea of "preparing global citizens" may seem a bit grandiose or hollow (or to some, even threatening; the term global is not always neutral). But the notion that educational business as usual matches the many changes in the international environment is hard to defend as well. New global components relate not only to contemporary citizenship, though the linkage is quite real, but also to many workplace opportunities—again, reflecting the wider environment.
