10th Cohort of ACE’s Internationalization Laboratory Holds Closing Meeting; Peer Review Visits Up Next

October 30, 2013



​The nine members of ACE’s 10th Internationalization Laboratory ​met for a final time Oct. 25 in Washington, DC, to share strategies and progress, and to prepare for the next Lab activity: peer review visits.

One institution said that as a result of the Lab, they opened an on-campus living/learning community for students interested in global issues. Students in that housing center not only receive special training and international exposure, but also are required to perform 10 hours of community service with international groups in the region.

Many of the cohort members described their work to create a foundation for global citizenship within their curricula. Surveying students for international competencies, such as language and citizenship skills, was a topic that came up frequently, and team members shared recommendations for how to approach it at any budget.

Of note, many teams mentioned the challenge of blending diversity and international initiatives, a topic that ACE has studied in detail.

“It was a very rich discussion of the steps forward and challenges many of these institutions have faced in internationalization,” said ACE Senior Associate and project leader Barbara Hill. “I look forward to watching them progress in the months and years to come.”
