Arena, Nancy J., Ed.
This report presents highlights of a conference designed to assist California State University campuses in efforts to internationalize their institutions. The conference addressed the following aspects of international education: introduction of appropriate international content and global awareness of the teaching-learning process; internationalization of an institution in its roles of teaching, research, and public service; generation of commitment and organization; better integration of the several international strands of an institution with the goal of maximizing the fulfillment of its international mission; more effective integration of foreign languages and international studies in the curriculum; methods of innovation and creation of cooperative partnerships with business and other major segments of the community; and meaningful contributions to the global education of school teachers and children before they reach postsecondary education. Transcripts of two presentations are presented: "Internationalizing Undergraduate Education and the National Interest" (Sven Groennings) and "The Role of Foreign Languages in Internationalizing Undergraduate Education" (Richard Brod). Appendices include the conference program, a participants list, and evaluation information. Contains a 74-item bibliography. (GLR)
