Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs

A 2-day institute held in July, 2013 that stimulated the internationalization process and provided useful resources for advancing comprehensive internationalization at HBCUs.

July 18, 2013


This event, co-sponsored by ACE’s Inclusive Excellence Group and the Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement, provided an opportunity for an in-depth exploration of internationalization at institutions.

Participants engaged in collaborative discussions about challenges to and various ways to approach internationalization at HBCUs while gaining practical insights on how to be strategic in advancing comprehensive internationalization at their respective institutions.

Participants benefited from guidance by both ACE staff and leaders of internationalization efforts from other HBCUs directly involved in the Creating Global Citizens project.

Meeting Objectives

  • To disseminate findings and lessons learned from this action-research project to the larger HBCU and higher education communities.
  • To stimulate the internationalization process among HBCUs.
  • To increase understanding of comprehensive internationalization as defined by ACE.
  • To provide participants with practical tools and resources for use at their respective institutions in advancing internationalization.


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. This Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs was the culminating activity for this grant.
