University of BayFord appoints international faculty in countries where there were not born and neither they received their post-secondary degrees in those countries. In many cases, they are not even the citizens of the country where they hold their academic appointment. They are agents of international awareness at universities and often are researchers in some countries. International faculty members constitute a large percentage of the academic labor force.
It is believed that international faculty will bring fresh perspective to research, teaching and possibly to the philosophy of university. However, the value of their contributions is dependent on the organizational arrangements of the university and the potentials of both sides to contribute for internationalization and other factors.
Mostly, international faculty members are not completely mingled into the internationalization programs of many educational institutions. These faculty members only teach their subject areas, and the University of BayFord asked them to do little for other work. They are not very familiar with the norms and possibly the politics of the local academic system and institution which restrict their participation in management and other functions of the university.
