"Leading Internationalization at a Crossroads" encapsulates the dynamic and pivotal role played by visionary university leaders in navigating the complex post- pandemic landscape. This theme highlights the pressing challenges and opportunities faced by higher education institutions in fostering collaboration, understanding, and progress in an interconnected world. At the heart of this theme is the recognition that internationalization is no longer a mere option but a crucial imperative for higher education institutions. As the world rapidly evolves, leaders find themselves at a crucial crossroads, where they must make strategic decisions to shape the future in addressing global challenges and increased polarization. Effective leaders understand that comprehensive internationalization extends beyond superficial interactions, requiring intentionality toward justice, equity, diversity, inclusivity, and mutual respect. Leading internationalization at the crossroads demands foresight and adaptability. Leaders must anticipate emerging trends, evaluate risks, and seize opportunities for collaboration and innovative partnerships, creating platforms for dialogue and cooperation. By harnessing the power of technology, leaders foster connections and bridge gaps across boundaries, transforming challenges into catalysts for growth and progress. Within this theme, international education leaders play a critical role in empowering individuals to embrace global perspectives, intercultural competence, and the ability to effectively navigate within increasingly fraught societies, empowering individuals to thrive in diverse environments and contribute meaningfully to a rapidly changing world. "Leading Internationalization at a Crossroads" challenges international education leaders to think boldly, act decisively, and drive positive change in the face of globalization's complexities. It underscores the significance of visionary leadership, emphasizing the need for inclusive and collaborative approaches that embrace the oneness of our shared humanity and foster a harmonious and prosperous future for all.
