HBCUs Explore Advancing Campus Internationalization at ACE Institute

July 22, 2013

In an increasingly interconnected world, all institutions should make a strategic approach to comprehensive internationalization part of their overall educational mission and institutional DNA.

That was the main message delivered by ACE staff and leaders of campus internationalization efforts last week at ACE’s Institute on Internationalization at HBCUs, which aimed to provide useful resources and practical insights for advancing comprehensive internationalization at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

More than 50 representatives of HBCUs and other institutions from across the country gathered July 18-19 in Washington, DC, for the event, which is based on findings from ACE’s Creating Global Citizens initiative, a collaborative research project involving seven institutions and ACE’s Inclusive Excellence Group and Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement.

The Institute featured discussions about the challenges to accomplishing comprehensive internationalization—from successful study abroad programs to attracting international scholars and students to foreign partnerships—and ways HBCUs can pursue internationalization at their respective institutions.

Session topics included: Gaining Campus and Community Buy-In for Internationalization; Managing Competing Priorities; Funding and Outreach Strategies; and Affecting True Change at the Institution.

Preliminary findings from the Creating Global Citizens project also were shared with Institute participants, with a final report slated to be released this fall.

The Institute and Creating Global Citizens project are part of a three-year grant awarded to ACE by the U.S. Department of Education to explore internationalization efforts at HBCUs.
