Strategies for Internalizing Campus and Curriculum. AASCU Pocket Platform.
Scott, Robert A.
This speech presents strategies to encourage international and multi-cultural education on college campuses. Six areas are listed that offer opportunities to improve and support internationalizing the curriculum and the campus as well as offer leverage for institutional change. Next, the principles used for international and multi-cultural education program development are explained via a case study of such an effort conducted at Ramapo College of New Jersey. Roadblocks to change and the broad objectives and strategies used at Ramapo College to facilitate that change are discussed, as well as the assessment criteria needed to evaluate the impact of the plans on faculty, the curriculum and extracurriculum, and the students. Observations and results are examined to describe what effect the process has had at Ramapo College. Finally, brief discussions are provided on the public influences on program development, and the future considerations of institutions that are considering the incorporation of global education into the curriculum. Contains 4 references. (GLR)
