Bernhard Streitwieser’s research looks comparatively at the impact of globalization on the internationalization of higher education. He has three main focus areas:

  • Internationalization & Mobility: research on study abroad, international student exchange, and the professional identity of ‘scholar-practitioners’ managing international education
  • Integration: research on the integration of migrants and refugees into higher education, with a geographic focus on Europe (Germany in particular) and the United States
  • Competition: research on international branch campuses and education hubs

Dr. Streitwieser earned his PhD in International and Comparative Education from Columbia University, Teachers College, his MS in Applied Linguistics from Georgetown University, and his BA in International Relations and Minor in Spanish from the University of Virginia.

From 2010-2013 Dr. Streitwieser was a visiting professor at Berlin's Humboldt Universität, where he was funded by research grants from the Fulbright Commission and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). He also served in 2012-2013 as Interim Chair of the university's Department of Comparative Education. From 2002-2010 he was an Associate Director and Senior Researcher at Northwestern University's Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, and a Lecturer in the School of Education and Social Policy. From 2006-08 he was also the Associate Director of Northwestern’s Study Abroad Office. Previously, Dr. Streitwieser was a guest researcher at the Max-Planck-Institut für-Bildungsforschung in Berlin and a Research Analyst at American Institutes for Research in Washington, DC.

In 2014 Dr. Streitwieser published Internationalisation of Higher Education and Global Mobility for the Oxford Studies in Comparative Education series; in 2016 he published International Higher Education’s Scholar-Practitioners: Bridging Research and Practice, for Symposium Books; and he is currently working on his third edited book, Education Abroad: Bridging Scholarship and Practice for Routledge's Internationalization of Higher Education series. He has published chapters in books with Peter Lang Publishers, Palgrave-Macmillan, Springer, Routledge, Teachers College Press, Sense, Symposium, IGI Global Press, the Schneider Verlag, and the Verlag Dr. Kovac, and in the journals Higher Education, Journal of Innovative Higher Education, International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, Research in International and Comparative Education, Journal of the Knowledge Economy, Educational Research & Evaluation, European Education, and the American Journal of Evaluation.

Dr. Streitwieser is on the steering committee of the University Alliance for Refugees and at-Risk Migrants (UARRM) and runs the Berlin Refugee Research Group (BRRG) with colleagues in Germany. In 2016 he won a research grant from the International Education Research Foundation for his study on “German Higher Education and Credentialing Newly Arrived Immigrants,” focusing on Syrian and other newly arrived refugees integrating into German higher education.

In 2018-2019 Bernhard Streitwieser is serving as a NAFSA Senior Fellow.

Berlin Refugee Research Group, BRRG
The Berlin refugee Research Group studies pathways, hindrances and opportunities fostering refugee access to and integration into German universities. Its current project focuses on Berlin’s research universities and universities of applied sciences. Current research will be profiled in a forthcoming chapter in Migrants, Refugees and Global Challenges in Higher Education (Peter Lang Publishers). The next phase of the project will involve interviews with refugee students entering German higher education (Summer 2018). The team is applying for funding to support additional data collection. Members of the team are: Bernhard Streitwieser, George Washington University, Maria Anne Schmidt, Hochschule fuer Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin, Katharina Marlen Gläsener, Beuth Hochschule für Technic Berlin, and Lukas Brück Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.
University Alliance for Refugees and at-Risk Migrants, UARRM

The UARRM is committed to mobilizing greater attention for and support from university campuses in the United States for the protection and empowerment of refugees and at-risk migrants, and works with interested partners inside and outside of the Academy to raise awareness, take action, and spring-board promising initiatives. Its members consist of representatives from government, NGOs, think tanks, and a wide and growing diversity of universities.
