Abstract

This chapter acts as a companion to Chapter Four which discusses the rise of the civic engagement movement in higher education and the mutual benefits of connecting universities with their local communities. The case studies, taken from three universities in the UK and Ireland, illuminate different aspects of civic engagement with international students, through sport and health initiatives and as an extension of a teaching degree. Each case study demonstrates best practice recognised by their sustainability, growing reputation and ongoing positive impact on students’ alternative real world learning experiences.
