As a core purpose of higher education, student learning is a critical element of internationalization. An internationalized curriculum and co-curriculum ensure that all students are exposed to international perspectives and build global competence. Globally-focused student learning outcomes articulate specific knowledge and skills to be addressed in courses and programs.
- General education requirements. Courses that focus on foreign language, regional studies and global issues are included in undergraduate general education requirements.
- Internationalized courses in the disciplines. Courses within each major incorporate international perspectives and highlight global issues in the field.
- Co-curriculum. Programs and activities address global issues, reinforce international elements of the curriculum, facilitate discussion and interaction among students of different backgrounds and support the integration and success of international students on campus.
- Student learning outcomes. Internationally-focused competencies are included in campus-wide student learning outcome goals and assessments.
- Technology. Technology is used in innovative ways to enhance global learning, e.g. through joint coursework and interactions with students and faculty abroad.
