To reimagine means, literally, to reassess, rethink, and recreate. It implies a need for radical change and innovation. In this special issue, authors explore the possibilities of connecting internationalization to society, for the benefit of society. Hitherto, much of the literature published on internationalization has been essentially inward looking, focused on how students and institutions experience internationalization and how they benefit, or not, from it. The papers in this issue explore a broader vision for internationalization, one focused also on the real and potential impact of internationalization activities on local and global communities. In different ways, each of the articles contributes to a new vision for internationalization, through the important process of reimagining internationalization for society.
