Eight Institutions Named to ACE Project on Diversity and Internationalization

August 23, 2011

 

ACE today named eight institutions as participants in At Home in the World: Educating for Global Connections and Local Commitments, a project funded by the Henry Luce Foundation to promote collaboration between internationalization and diversity/multicultural education initiatives on college and university campuses.

The institutions are: Alliant International University-San Diego; Arcadia University (PA); Bennett College for Women (NC); Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (CA); Mercy College (NY); North Carolina State University; University of Colorado at Colorado Springs; and Washington State University. They were chosen out of 54 applicants.

“The interface between multicultural and international efforts on campus is a critical place to engage students, who will face an increasingly diverse and global workplace over the course of their careers,” said Patti McGill Peterson, presidential advisor for global initiatives at ACE. “Competition for this project was quite intense and showed a great desire among applicants to address this important relationship. We anticipate great strides from this learning community.”

The institutions will explore connections between on-campus international and diversity efforts to better prepare students for the impact of globalization and improve cultural communication skills among students, faculty and staff. ACE will provide consultation on the project and facilitate meetings between participants.
