The work didn’t end when a group of 31 senior international officers (SIOs) from a diverse group of institutions headed back to their campuses June 11 at the conclusion of the first ACE/AIEA Institute for Leading Internationalization.

Each SIO will be working this summer with their supervisor to complete an assignment designed at the Institute, such as creating a campus-wide committee on internationalization or devising a schedule of action items based on an internationalization strategic plan.

They will be carrying home with them the message that, as one speaker put it, “the entire campus is a school of international studies.” Speakers and participants also stressed that the rationale for and benefits of internationalization should be looked at in the broader context of an institution’s overarching mission.

The program helped participants grapple with a number of questions surrounding campus internationalization, including how to develop an institution’s international goals and vision; how to make the case for internationalization; and how to assess both opportunities and risks in weighing international partnerships. Sessions included, “Comprehensive International Strategy,” “International and Institutional Goals,” and “The Evolving Role of the SIO: Opportunities and Challenges for Career and Professional Development.”

The three-day Institute was a joint project of ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement and the Association of International Education Administrators and was sponsored by Huron Consulting.
