International Education in the Two-Year College.
Glick, Ervie L.
This paper contains an overview of current activities and potential opportunities for two-year colleges in the area of international education. While involvement of two-year colleges in international education is generally limited and fragmented, there are four major areas of activity: foreign language and area studies, technical assistance and consultancies, foreign student enrollment, and direct exchanges and study abroad. Most institutions already have some type of program in area studies and foreign languages. Consultancies and assistance opportunities are becoming more widely available, particularly as more developing countries seek aid in establishing two-year and technical colleges. Foreign student enrollment, while limited, has a beneficial effect and should be promoted, but specialized services must be provided to insure that the foreign student has a positive experience. Direct exchange/study abroad programs are accessible to all institutions, although few have taken advantage of them; a specific program at the University of Minnesota Technical College at Crookston is described to illustrate this functioning. A listing of resources available to institutions interested in developing international components of their programs is included in this paper. (JDS)
