After an overview of the status of international education in the United States, five program descriptions of consortia arrangements for international education programs that are carried out by member institutions of the Council for International Leadership are presented. Most include sponsorship or coordination of some type of study-abroad program and a number of consortia coordinate language instruction through cross-registration and other arrangements. The five programs that are briefly described are: New Orleans consortium--modern foreign language centers; Five Colleges, Inc.--teaching Italian; The College Center of the Finger Lakes--Bahamian Station and Atelier; Urban Corridor consortium--study-abroad programs; and the Alabama Consortium for the Development of Higher Education--international program activities. In addition to a list of resources for international education, the following three resources are briefly discussed: the Council for Intercultural Studies and Programs, the new federal agency called the "International Development Cooperation Agency," and the Council on Learning Project.
