This study explores the challenges family and consumer sciences (FCS) faculty face as they internationalize their teaching, research, and service. Challenges to internationalized activity as perceived by FCS faculty include institutional, resource, and personal barriers. Although institu- tional and resource barriers are considered more challenging by FCS faculty, analysis shows that personal barriers such as lack of personal engagement with international issues are most related to decreased international activity.
