    Highlights and insights from the author’s unique Global Faculty Development position at Kansai University in Osaka from 2016-2020. The article, published in Australia, summarizes data on the expressed needs of faculty clients, cites international research on English-Medium Instruction programs, and shows how globalization pressures reach the level of university departments and their individual members. The International Education Support Office, where the author was the first and only one-to-one mentor, was evidently one of the world’s first Faculty Development programs for English-Medium Instruction. Kansai University aimed to encourage regular faculty members to teach in English, but their expressed needs illustrate broader international academic concerns.
