While there are more non-native professor of English than native-speakers, and given the breadth and depth of English in global commuications, of course one cannot expect a monolithic language.
However, another point must also be made: there is a preference for American English among English learners.
This fact is particulary relevant given the "soft power" of the United States in global culture, a term popularized by Harvard Professor Joseph Nye.
