At Home in the World Institute Highlights Shared Space Between Internationalization, Diversity

October 23, 2013



​At the culminating institute of ACE’s At Home in the World project Oct. 17-18, teams from a broad range of institutions nationwide came together to discuss collaborations between campus diversity and internationalization initiatives.

Over the course of the two-day conference outside Washington, DC, keynote speakers included Damon A. Williams, senior vice president at the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, who delivered a plenary on the promise of meaningful partnerships.

The teams also participated in concurrent sessions led by the eight project institutions that delved into the practicalities of on-campus work, such as a session on mapping campus resources; and discussed how to implement collaborative ideas on campus.

A highlight of the conference was a panel moderated by ACE Presidential Advisor for Global Initiatives Patti McGill Peterson, which delved into how leaders can impact campus culture to help find common ground between international and diversity efforts. Panelists stressed that champions of these issues can be found at all levels of an institution, and it is often the leaders’ job to find and empower them.

Although the three-year At Home in the World project ends soon, ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement and Inclusive Excellence Group are producing an online toolkit that will encapsulate the central themes of the project, with release planned in early 2014. 

At Home in the World is funded by the Henry Luce Foundation.
