Internationalizing the University: Making It Work.
Aigner, Jean S.; And Others
This paper presents an agenda for "internationalizing" the university and discusses the operationalization of such an endeavor through efforts in the following areas: administration; faculty and curriculum; foreign study and international exchanges; foreign students and scholars; technical cooperation and international development; and public service. Each area is detailed in terms of actions necessary to internationalize the university as well as the inherent difficulties that each action possesses. Success in "internationalizing" efforts is seen to depend on service, coordination, cooperation, and small-scale change, and the reasons for each are discussed. Finally, examples are provided of methods various universities have used to handle internationalization of their campuses, including the strategies employed; the organizational structures that were developed; and innovative plans and recommendations involving curriculum, faculty, study abroad, and exchange efforts. Contains a 20-item bibliography. (GLR)
