About CIGE

December 30, 1899

 

ACE’s Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (CIGE) helps institutions develop and sustain comprehensive, effective internationalization programs that increase global engagement for students, faculty and staff. We believe effective internationalization goes beyond traditional study abroad programs and international student enrollment. It requires a comprehensive institutional commitment that also includes curriculum, research, faculty development, and active strategies for institutional engagement. In addition, CIGE monitors and analyzes global trends in higher education in cooperation with other education associations around world. 

 

ACE's Blue Ribbon Report

ACE's Blue Ribbon Report contains the findings of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Global Engagement. The panel, appointed by ACE President Molly Corbett Broad, was charged with assessing the dynamically changing landscape in which U.S. higher education exists and recommending what ACE should do to support and enhance the global engagement of U.S. higher education institutions.

The findings of the report resulted in the creation of CIGE, which now serves to implement the recommendations of the panel. Those recommendations are:

  • Lead on critical global higher education issues;
  • Assume a broader advocacy role;
  • Conduct, gather, and disseminate research and analysis;
  • Provide constituent services in the global arena; and 
  • Deepen international ties and outreach.  

 

Commission on Internationalization and Global Engagement

The Commission on Internationalization and Global Engagement advises ACE on its initiatives in comprehensive internationalization and global priorities. This commission serves as an important advisory and strategic planning body for CIGE by developing policy positions on international education and global issues, conducting research on critical topics in the field, sponsoring programs to help member institutions advance strategic internationalization and representing U.S. higher education internationally.

The Commission also guides CIGE in its collaboration with other associations, government departments, and the private sector to advance international initiatives.

The Commission meets during the ACE Annual Meeting and in conjunction with the Leadership Network for International Education, a broader group including both presidents and chief academic officers, to discuss a major issue in the internationalization of higher education.
