Comprehensive Internationalization: Faculty Policies and Practices

December 30, 1899

 

​As the primary drivers of teaching and research, faculty play a pivotal role in campus internationalization. Institutional policies and support mechanisms ensure that faculty have opportunities to develop international competence and are able to maximize the impact of these experiences on student learning.



  • Tenure and promotion policies.  Tenure codes state explicitly that international work and experience should be considered in tenure and promotion decisions.
  • Hiring guidelines. International background, experience and interests are among the criteria upon which faculty candidates are evaluated.
  • Faculty mobility. Faculty have opportunities to teach, conduct research and attend conferences abroad. Administrative and funding mechanisms support faculty participation in outside programs (e.g. Fulbright).
  • On-campus professional development.  Workshops, seminars and other programs help faculty build international competence and incorporate international perspectives into their teaching.
