Facing the Future: The Internationalization of Post-Secondary Institutions in British Columbia. Task Force Report.
This report examines the internationalization of post-secondary education institutions in British Columbia and presents the results of a survey of international education representatives at 22 post-secondary institutions in the province. Internationalization is defined as the process that prepares the community for successful participation in an increasingly interdependent world. The first part provides an overview of internationalization, including a review of the literature on internationalization, models and case studies of internationalization at the post-secondary institutions, key features of effective internationalization, and internationalization mechanisms. The second part presents the results of a campus internationalization survey, which addressed differing conceptualizations of internationalization, campus diversity, financial resources, leadership patterns, international students, and institutional change. In Part III general and specific recommendations to help improve internationalization are included. Six appendixes provide information on task force membership, terms of reference, survey questionnaires, limitations of the survey, contact list, and a bibliography. (Contains 72 references.) (MDM)
