A repository of resources for college and university internationalization
Looking to jumpstart internationalization? No need to reinvent the wheel.
CIGE has collected examples of policies, programs, surveys, and other information from participants in the Internationalization Laboratory program and other institutions.
Resources are organized according to the six aspects of the CIGE Model for Comprehensive Internationalization, and are provided as models for other colleges and universities as they pursue their internationalization goals.
