Society of Transnational Academic Researchers (STAR)
Upward academic mobility.
WHO WE ARE
We are a member-supported grassroots organization building communities that support the advancement of international scholars and graduate students working across borders.
...across national disciplinary generational social class borders.
WHAT WE DO
The Society of Transnational Academic Researchers (STAR) leverages the power of transnational connections to support upward academic mobility for new generations of international scholars and graduate students through mentoring, open access publishing, leadership development, and community-building.
OUR GRASSROOTS APPROACH
How have we grown from an idea to the largest and fastest-growing network of international scholars and graduate students around the world? We are a member-supported movement powered by human-to-human relationships where international scholars and graduate students organize and act to create a better future for themselves and the world. Our approach focuses on human-to-human relationships, alternative futures, distributed leadership, organizing platforms, open access, continuous learning, and local languages.
