The Internationalization Review Process

December 30, 1899

 

​As part of the Internationalization Laboratory, ACE provides assistance to leadership teams as they engage in a comprehensive review of internationalization efforts on campus. Steps include self-assessment, site visits, peer reviews, and a final report.

While ACE works with each institution to customize a process that best suits its needs, institutions are asked to commit to the following:

  • Forming an internationalization leadership team.
  • Engaging in a review of current internationalization efforts, with the goal of sharpening institutional and student learning goals and developing or updating an action plan.
  • Allocating sufficient staff time to accomplish the review.
  • Participating (at least 2 team members) in 3 meetings of the Laboratory, one in conjunction with the January Internationalization Collaborative meeting in Washington, DC.
  • Membership fee for the Laboratory, plus travel expenses for site visits.

Specific activities will likely include:

  • Initial One-Day Site Visit. ACE staff visit each campus to help institutions prepare for the self-assessment. The visit generally includes a meeting with the leadership team and a roundtable with key stakeholders to begin the dialogue, define the key questions and issues, clarify goals, and build support for the process across campus.
  • On-Campus Review Process. This process is based on materials presented in Internationalizing the Campus: A User's Guide that outline a process for reviewing current strategies and activities and developing a strategic plan. This review process culminates in a written report produced by the leadership team.
  • Regular Contact with Laboratory Staff by Phone and E-mail. ACE provides assistance to individual leadership teams as they go through the process of completing a comprehensive review of internationalization efforts on campus. This guidance includes a preliminary review of prepared assessment materials, plus recommendations for enhancing the materials to generate a more comprehensive report.
  • Peer Review Team Visit. Upon completion of the self-assessment report, a team of ACE staff and experts in the field of internationalization visits individual campuses. These site visits last one to two days and include meetings with the president, senior administrators, board members, faculty, administrators, and students.
  • Development of a Report by the Visiting Team. This report analyzes the status of internationalization at the member campus and makes recommendations for future work in internationalization.
