The Institute for Leading Internationalization is designed to improve the effectiveness of anyone who has a critical role in advancing internationalization on their campus.

Who Should Attend
The Institute is ideal for:

  • Those who are leading internationalization from within a single campus unit, such as a professional school.
  • Deans or associate deans who have internationalization in their portfolio of responsibilities.
For some institutions, a combination of these individuals may be appropriate, and teams are encouraged to apply.
