Mapping Internationalization Assessment Tool

December 30, 1899

​One of the first steps toward developing an internationalization strategy is to analyze the current state of internationalization and global engagement on your campus. This web tool will assist you in mapping internationalization at your institution and, to help you put this into perspective, will allow you to compare your efforts to those of your peer institutions using national averages.

The survey questions that you will be asked to complete are a representative sample from the full Mapping Internationalization survey. Questions were selected from each of the six categories of CIGE’s Model for Comprehensive Internationalization to provide you with a holistic review of your international programs and policies.  

As you evaluate your efforts, pay attention to areas where you possess strengths and areas for improvement.  Information gathered by using this tool can help you set priorities for becoming a more comprehensively internationalized institution. Remember, however, that no two institutions are alike. There is no “one size fits all” model for comprehensive internationalization. An institution’s internationalization and global engagement strategy must align with the institution’s mission, vision, and values. 


Using the tool

Step 1: Complete the survey questions.

Step 2: Select result sets to compare to national averages.

Step 3: Review the results.

Step 4: Utilize the data to take action on your campus. Refer to "Related Content" for internationalization resources and ways in which ACE can assist you in your efforts.
