Luce Foundation Grant to ACE Will Promote Multicultural Education and Internationalization

January 06, 2011


The Henry Luce Foundation has awarded ACE a three-year, $400,000 grant for At Home in the World, a project to promote collaboration between internationalization and multicultural education initiatives on college and university campuses.

Among the long-term goals of At Home in the World, an ACE initiative started in 2006, are to help a more diverse group of students understand and prepare for the implications of globalization while improving cultural communication skills among students, faculty and staff to reduce conflict on campus and worldwide.

"At present, few institutions take full advantage of the crossover between multiculturalism and internationalism. By bringing these concepts together, we can better prepare students for their careers in a pluralistic, global society," said ACE President Molly Corbett Broad. "We are thankful to the Henry Luce Foundation for its support of these efforts."

"From our previous grants to ACE, we are confident of the Council's capacity to foster leadership and encourage best practices in the country's colleges and universities," said Michael Gilligan, president of the Henry Luce Foundation. "At Home in the World offers great promise of linking existing efforts at promoting global education with commitments to diversity and multicultural education. We look forward to seeing models that individual institutions develop."

In the coming months, ACE will accept applications from colleges and universities to join a learning community to be comprised of eight institutions. These institutions will share approaches and develop model practices for effective multicultural/internationalization collaboration efforts through a series of meetings and consultations with ACE and each other.
