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

  • Integration: research on the integration of migrants and refugees into higher education, with a geographic focus on Europe (Germany) and the United States
  •  Internationalization & Mobility: research on study abroad and international student exchange
  • 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 a 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 Associate Director and Senior Researcher at Northwestern University's Searle Center for Advancing Learning and Teaching, and was also a Lecturer in the School of Education and Social Policy. From 2006-2008 he was 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, where he was supported by a Federal Chancellor Grant from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. After that, he served for two years as a Research Analyst at the American Institutes for Research in Washington, DC.

Dr. Streitwieser has published books on the following topics: Internationalisation of Higher Education and Global Mobility (Oxford Studies in Comparative Education); International Higher Education’s Scholar-Practitioners: Bridging Research and Practice (Symposium Books); Education Abroad: Bridging Scholarship and Practice (Routledge); Higher Education in the Era of Migration, Displacement and Internationalization (Routledge); and Refugees and Higher Education: Questioning the Notion of Integration (Springer). His current edited book project is Accessing Quality Education for Refugees: Local and Global Perspectives (Rowman & Littlefield) with the students in his Lab. He has published chapters in books with Routledge; Springer; Peter Lang; Palgrave-Macmillan; Teachers College Press; Sense; Symposium; IGI Global Press; the Schneider Verlag; and the Verlag Dr. Kovac, and written for the journals, Comparative Education ReviewCompare: A Journal of Comparative and International  EducationHigher Education PolicyHigher EducationJournal of Studies in International EducationInternational Journal of Intercultural RelationsJournal of Innovative Higher EducationInternational Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher EducationJournal on Migration and Human Security; Refuge: Canada's Journal on RefugeesChange: The Magazine of Higher LearningResearch in International and Comparative EducationJournal of the Knowledge EconomyEducational Research & EvaluationEuropean EducationGlobal Education ReviewJournal for Deradicalization; 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 he received funding from the International Institute of Education's Platform for Education in Emergencies Response (PEER) and the Catalyst Foundation to conduct a study “From Non-formal-to-Formal Educational Pathways for Refugee Students. A Research Study Comparing Higher Education Interventions for Refugees in Germany and Lebanon." In 2018-2019 Bernhard Streitwieser served as a NAFSA Senior Fellow. In 2021, Dr. Streitwieser received the GW Gomez/Lemasters Research Award to develop his Refugee Educational Advancement Laboratory (REAL) and launch an edited book project with the students in the lab.

In the Summer of 2019 Dr. Streitwieser took 13 GW students to Berlin, Hamburg and Chemnitz for a study tour on "Integration of Migrants and Refugees into Higher Education: Case Study Germany" funded by a grant he won from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). In July he also hosted a conference on Refugee Integration funded by a grant he won from the Volkswagen Foundation with colleagues from the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies.
