Johnston, Joseph S., Jr.; Edelstein, Richard J.
This publication profiles 15 college and university interdisciplinary collaboration programs for international education. Chapter 1, "Beyond Borders" by Joseph S. Johnston, Jr., outlines the importance of such programs and of international education in particular. It also addresses rationales for internationalization, challenges to its implementation and survival, and business-liberal arts faculty collaborations. Chapter 2 contains 15 program profiles at the following institutions: Babson College (Massachusetts); Bentley College (Massachusetts); Boston College (Massachusetts); College of Staten Island, City University of New York; Eastern Michigan University; Kalamazoo College (Michigan); Ramapo College of New Jersey; St. Olaf College (Minnesota); University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, San Diego; University of Michigan; University of Pennsylvania; University of Rhode Island; University of South Carolina; and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (Massachusetts). Chapter 3, "Lessons from Campus Practice" by Richard J. Edelstein, highlights the following lessons: there is no one best approach, know your institution, attend to the challenge of pedagogy, leadership makes a difference, create an international ethos on campus, engage faculty colleagues, funding is necessary but not sufficient, and select an appropriate campus home.
