ACE Announces Ninth Internationalization Laboratory Cohort

September 13, 2011

 

A new cohort of eight institutions led by ACE will begin work this fall to create more globally engaged campuses with enhanced curricula and other international opportunities for their students.

The members of ACE 's 2011-2012 Internationalization Laboratory Cohort are:

  • Fielding Graduate University, Santa Barbara, CA
  • Georgia Gwinnett College, Lawrenceville, GA
  • Montana State University, Bozeman, MT
  • Monroe Community College, Rochester, NY
  • Universidad Metropolitana, San Juan, PR
  • University of Wisconsin-River Falls, WI
  • University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY
  • Webster University, St. Louis, MO

Over the next year, members of the cohort will work to increase global engagement on campus by forming leadership teams to work on strategic planning and student outcomes, attending community meetings in Washington, and participating in site visits and peer reviews, among other activities.

"Whether you're at a community college or a research university, the challenges and road blocks in creating a truly internationalized campus are very similar," said Barbara Hill, project director and senior associate for internationalization at ACE. "Though they represent diverse geographic regions, institution types and sizes, the cohort will be able to share practical ideas and solutions that will ultimately enhance the student experience."

ACE has hosted 59 schools in the Internationalization Laboratory since 2003. This year's cohort had its first meeting in Washington, DC, on Aug. 25.
