Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs
Our Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs is a 2-day institute that aims to stimulate the internationalization process and provide useful resources for advancing comprehensive internationalization at HBCUs. It takes place on July 18-19, 2013. Learn more about the Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs.
The U.S. Department of Education awarded ACE a 3-year grant to explore internationalization efforts at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The goals of the project are to identify the factors that enhance and impede the internationalization process at HBCUs and to disseminate findings from this action research project to the broader HBCU community.
After a rigorous selection process in the Fall 2010, 7 institutions were selected to participate in this project:
Since January 2011, ACE has worked with these 7 HBCUs as an internationalization learning community. Teams from these institutions audited their campus international activities with the goal of creating a strategic plan to accelerate the internationalization process. As a Learning Community, the teams from each institution have worked with ACE to identify promising policies, programs and structures that encourage campus internationalization. The findings of this project and strategies for enhancing campus internationalization efforts will be shared with the larger HBCU community at our upcoming Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs, this July 18-19, 2013.
The advisory group for this project includes representatives from the following organizations along with senior leaders from the HBCU community:
