Collaborate with CIGE experts and colleagues in the field to develop and advance internationalization initiatives on your campus. Click on the links below to learn more about our programs and how your institution can participate.


The Internationalization Collaborative

The Internationalization Collaborative serves as a learning community that provides a forum for faculty and administrators to share ideas and help each other in furthering their international agendas. Each year ACE sponsors a meeting that brings together the leadership teams from each of the member institutions.



The Internationalization Laboratory

ACE's Internationalization Laboratory provides institutions with customized guidance and insight as they review their internationalization goals and develop strategic plans. A cohort of institutions participates over a two-year period.

ACE/SUNY COIL Center Internationalization through Technology Awards

ACE and the SUNY COIL Center are collaborating to present an awards program, sponsored by Asahi Net International, to recognize, support, and promote the use of technology to enhance institutional internationalization and global competence among students at U.S. colleges and universities.

The Institute for Leading Internationalization

The Institute is a three-day workshop designed for senior campus leaders with responsibility for internationalization, including senior international officers. The Institute also requires that each participant complete a follow-on project with their immediate supervisor.

The Executive Forum for Leading Internationalization

The Executive Forum for Leading Internationalization (formerly the Leadership Network for International Education) is an annual, one-day meeting of presidents, chief academic officers (CAOs), and senior international officers (with their president or CAO) to explore strategies for advancing internationalization.

Creating Global Citizens

With a grant from the U.S. Department of State, ACE is leading an exploration of internationalization efforts at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). ACE is working with a cohort of seven HBCUs as an internationalization learning community to identify the factors that enhance and impede the internationalization process at HBCUs and to disseminate findings from this action research project to the broader HBCU community.

At Home in the World

The Inclusive Excellence Group and CIGE at ACE are working together to engage higher education institutions in examining the collaboration potential between diversity/multicultural education and internationalization. Currently, ACE is working with a select group of eight institutions to advance new analytical frameworks, enhance pedagogy and develop innovative ways of fostering collaboration between internationalization and diversity/multicultural education on campus.
