It seems that interest in international issues by professionals and students in communication disorders is growing exponentially. As I speak to graduate students around the country, they are thirsty for clinic-abroad opportunities. This summer, I was fortunate enough to travel to Mongolia and Peru to work with universities in the areas of special education and communication disorders and to work with medical practitioners in the provision of services. On my return, the first question I received from colleagues was, “How can I go abroad with you next time?” I know I am very fortunate to be able to do my work in other countries, and I am very appreciative of these opportunities. During my month away, I had time to experience many things and to think seriously about what was expected of me in my global service. When I read the current four articles in this issue of Perspectives, the answers were there. The threads or themes that ran through these articles were ones that I have noticed in all of our Perspectives issues over the years and address the idea of what is expected of those of us who work internationally.
