New Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses Survey Coming Soon
November 19, 2020

This winter, ACE is gearing up to begin collecting data for the Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses’ fifth edition. Make sure your institution is included by signing up for email updates as the survey gets underway through the sidebar on our Mapping webpage.

Every five years, ACE assesses the current state of internationalization at American colleges and universities, analyzes progress and trends over time, and identifies future priorities as part of the project. It is the only comprehensive source of data and analysis on internationalization in U.S. higher education, and includes two- and four-year, public and private, degree-granting institutions.

ACE’s Assistant Vice President for Learning and Engagement Robin Matross Helms interviewed senior research analyst Maria Claudia Soler to learn more about previous findings, what to expect from this year’s survey, and how to get involved.

Key findings from the 2017 edition include:

  • Internationalization is increasingly an administrative-intensive endeavor.
  • Focus on student mobility is increasing.
  • An increasing percentage of institutions are implementing academic and co-curricular policies and programming that facilitate on-campus global learning.
  • More institutions are offering internationally focused faculty professional development opportunities.
