ACE/AIEA Meeting Delves Into Fiscal Realities of Campus Internationalization

February 24, 2014

birdseye meeting

 

​The ACE/AIEA Internationalization Collaborative met on Feb. 15 to discuss how leaders in campus internationalization can continue their work given limited, and sometimes declining, resources.

Among the highlights of the day was a panel on the role of executive leadership in allocating resources moderated by Patti McGill Peterson, ACE presidential advisor for Global Initiatives, and a plenary panel on advancing international projects within already constrained budgets moderated by Susan Sutton, chair of the Internationalization Collaborative Advisory Council.

Key themes that emerged from these talks and the many small-group discussions held during the meeting included:

  • Understanding how campus executives allocate existing resources and set priorities for finding new resources.
  • The role of the senior international officer in stimulating innovation.
  • Finding cost-effective ways to internationalize through the creative use of technology, international students, faculty and the curriculum.

The Internationalization Collaborative is a national forum for addressing the opportunities and challenges of campus internationalization. Over the course of its 14-year history, more than 100 institutions have participated in its annual meetings. Two years ago, ACE and the Association of International Education Administrators (AIEA) began to jointly sponsor the meeting around AIEA’s annual conference.
