Universities are not preparing all of their students for 21st century global work and citizenship. Internationalization of the Curriculum is critical to this preparation and equity in higher education. Over the past decades, universities have relied on outbound and inbound student mobility to internationalize their institutions, the curriculum, the faculty, and student learning. However, 90% of U.S. students neither study nor intern abroad. Of the 10% who do go abroad, very few are underrepresented, Pell-eligible, or post-traditional students. Universities need to shift their focus from student mobility to Internationalization at Home so that all students may have an internationalized education experience as part of their degree. This qualitative study examined faculty experience in teaching Collaborative Online International Learning courses as a pedagogical approach with curricular implications for Internationalization at Home. The interview data and analysis have implications for institutional internationalization strategy to equitably prepare all students for 21st century global work and citizenship. Key findings include that Collaborative Online International Learning is a faculty-driven intervention for Internationalization at Home, giving all students opportunities for global learning and engagement.
