This installment of Internationalization in Action is the second in a four-part series on developing and implementing international partnerships. The first installment, Definitions and Dimensions, presented a broad overview of partnership types in order to set the stage for deeper discussion of how such relationships play out in practice. Here, we turn our attention to the campus level, and focus on institution-level strategic planning for partnership activity.
