ABSTRACT

 

The world is rapidly turning into a global village. The current trade of liberalization has made economies more open to global forces and this has neither spared higher education. Higher education institutions are using internationalization efforts to boost their competitive edge and sustainability levels: environmentally, socially and economically. The research study is to establish the extent of internationalization efforts in Kyambogo University as enshrined in its study programs and other University activities; the extent to which students have been prepared to embrace sustainability in their study programs; the extent to which lecturers are aware and integrating the message of sustainability in their teaching –learning activities and the strategies Kyambogo University can adopt to use selected aspects of internationalization to boost its reputation and sustainability levels. The target population is university senior administration; lecturers and students. Interviews and documentary analysis will be used to collect the data. Based on the study findings, policy recommendations will be drawn for Kyambogo University to reflect on.

 

Key words: Intricacies; internationalization; higher education; sustainable development; developing countries.
