Institutional Strategies

This track explores the ways in which global learning both contributes to and is advanced by overall programs of internationalization at departmental, school, campus, and university levels. It uses presentations, break-out sessions, and the collective building of hypothetical internationalization plans to examine the following issues: 1) making the case for internationalization; 2) planning for internationalization; and 3) implementing internationalization.

Participants will be able to:

  1. Articulate the importance and meaning of internationalization to appropriate stakeholders

  2. Identify the internationalization continuum and their institutions current position

  3. Apply the Five Phase Planning Process to creating an Internationalization Plan

    Phase One - Setting the Stage by Identifying Key Indicators and Stakeholders for Success
    Phase Two – Data Gathering through Internationalization Asset Mapping
    Phase Three – Vision Setting / Connecting Institutional Missions and International Vision
    Phase Four – Establishing Internationalization Goals, Strategies, and Metrics
    Phase Five – Implementation and Assessment
