Guidelines: Incorporating an International Dimension in Colleges and Universities.
American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
Guidelines for assisting colleges and universities to improve the international dimension of their campuses are presented, with attention to administrative leadership, curriculum development, faculty development, student awareness, and resources. Each guideline consists of a definition, an interpretation of its potential contribution to international education, and a series of questions. Attention is directed to the following concerns: commitment of the president and governing board to the internationalization of the campus and curriculum; incorporating an international dimension in general and professional studies; the recruitment and support of faculty whose teaching, research, and service will enhance the institution's international dimension; providing students the opportunity to develop attitudes, skills, and knowledge about the political, social, and economic issues of the world; and provision by the institution of the human, material, curricular, and organizational resources to support its institutional mission. A self-study to assess commitment to international education is recommended, along with a periodic inventory to assess institutional achievement and accountability. (SW)
