dc.description.abstract The purpose of this Mixed Methods Phenomenological study was to investigate engagement in education through a global lens. As an educator and avid traveler, the researcher noticed a distinct difference in the attitude, investment, and engagement of international students compared to those within the United States. In most countries outside the U.S., there seemed to be an excitement and value for learning compared to the U.S., where the researcher found students uninterested or reluctant to engage in their education. This study investigates international engagement in education from the lens of multiple stakeholders through cognitive dissonance theory. A perceived lack of engagement from American stakeholders is presented as an academic problem based on the researcher’s hypothesis and purpose of the study. The research on systemic educational shifts worldwide over the last century acknowledges the United States academic plateau since the 1950s. The importance and different leadership styles are reviewed as well as common attributes for systemic educational change to promote engagement within education. A deeper dive into education and beyond, college and career readiness, and the importance of engaging students in their educational journey for sustainable success are presented in chapter two. The study's methodology, data collection procedures, and review of findings are presented and analyzed. Results are examined in connection to the four research questions and concludes with implications of practice and future research exploration. en_US
