International Update, Nov 1990-Oct 1991
"International Update" is a newsletter providing information on two-year college international education activities and on funding opportunities and governmental/legislative trends that will affect community and junior colleges' ability to expand their efforts in such areas as services for foreign students, bilingual education, and study abroad and international exchange programs. The 11 annual issues of "International Update" published between November 1990 and October 1991 contain information on the availability of funding for international activities from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, the Department of Education, State Legalization Impact Assistance Grants, United States Information Agency, the Fulbright Program, and other programs and agencies. In addition to information on the activities, conferences, and programs of the American Council on International Intercultural Education, the newsletters include brief descriptions of a wide range of college-based programs and tips on international activities that can be undertaken, including: (1) Los Angeles Mission College's program for California's newly legalized immigrant population; (2) a new intercultural anthology for remedial reading/writing students; (3) the visit to St. Petersburg Junior College of two Soviet dignitaries; (4) the opportunities afforded by sister cities' connections; (5) services offered by the Mexican Embassy; (6) security for students traveling abroad; (7) Nassau Community College's experiential learning program in London; and (8) the effects of J-Visa regulations on vocational programs.
