Internationalization has become a key strategic priority of many universities around the world. It is frequentlyregarded as a means to enhance the quality of higher education through strategic partnerships, collaborative researchand teaching initiatives, for knowledge exchange and creation. Higher education internationalization often focusesprimarily on the mobility of both staff and students as a means to improve their international outlook and interculturalcapabilities. However, this paper argues that if universities are to become truly ‘international’, they should start‘at home’. It considers how a review of current internationalization practices, involving educators, students, staffdevelopment and professional service units, and those in leadership positions, can help higher education institutionsto move towards a more values-based and ethical approach to internationalization.
