Robert Arnove has been, over the past three decades, one of the leading scholars in the field of comparative and international education. Since joining Indiana University in 1969, he has served as the director of graduate programs in Foundations of Education, International and Comparative Education, and Education Policy Studies. He is a past President of the North American Comparative and International Education Society (2000-2001), and an Honorary Fellow of the society for lifelong contributions to scholarship in this field of study. He has been a representative from CIES to the World Council of Comparative Education Society, and the first chair of its Special Projects Committee. He has served on the editorial boards of the Comparative Education Review and Compaer, and the publication series of the Comparative Education Research Centre of the University of Hong Kong.

Professor Arnove is an expert in the fields of comparative and international education and the sociology of education. He has made major contributions to research on national education systems from a world-systems perspective, to the critical analysis of the role major philanthropic foundations play in agenda setting in education and social science research, to the historical and comparative study of national literacy campaigns, to the conceptualization of nonformal and popular education as well as alternative schools, and to the study of political and educational change in Latin America, in general, and Nicaragua, in particular.

Professor Arnove has been a visiting scholar and professor at Stanford University, McGill University, the University of Iowa, Hangzhou University (China), the Queensland University of Technology, the University of Madrid (La Complutense), the University of Salamanca, the Federal University of Bahia (on a Fulbright Lectureship), the University of Palermo (Buenos Aires, as UNESCO Chair of Higher Education), the Hong Kong Institute of Education, and the Iberoamerican University in the Dominican Republic (as a senior Fulbright scholar). He has received numerous teaching and service awards from Indiana University, including the Amoco Distinguished Teaching Award (1982), the FACET (Faculty Colloquium on Excellence in Teaching) Award (1991), the John W. Ryan Award for Distinguished Contributions to International Programs and Studies (1995), and the University Graduate School Distinguished Teaching Mentoring Award (1998). He was named a Chancellors' Professor in 2001.
