I am still learning.

– Michelangelo, age 87

The ISI Florence and Umbra Institute Studies in International Education

This journal has been created to facilitate the open exchange of ideas, research, experiences, and opinions on the subject of international education. BEYOND aims to update readers on the evolving needs/wants of students, assess the current issues affecting our programs, and anticipate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead of us. This journal recognizes that our learning is continuous.


The wide-ranging and fascinating topics are grouped in sections:

  • Academics: Teaching practice, research, and pedagogy.

  • Administrators: Delivering programs and services to students.

  • Alumni/Students: Testimonials from students past and present about the study abroad experience.

  • Resources: book reviews and other important information.

We'd like to hear from you whether you are an academic, administrator, alumni or student. BEYOND is open for submissions from all international higher education institutions. 

Success! Message received.
