Looking to the Future: Report on California Community College International and Global Education Programs. A Report on Activities Funded by the Chancellor's Office for the California Community Colleges 1997-1999 Fund for Instructional Improvement Research Grant.
Raby, Rosalind Latiner
This report assesses the current status of international and global education at California community colleges (CCC), and provides a review of the literature in an effort to help inform future policy discussions and recommendations on funding and state support. There were five steps involved in this study: (1) creation of the Alliance on International/Intercultural Education Advisory Committee, which included representatives from eight CCC organizations and representatives from the Chancellor's Office, California State University, and the University of California; (2) distribution of the CCC International and Global Education Survey to all CEOs and CIOs at the colleges; (3) analysis of the State Chancellor's database to provide a systemwide interpretation of international and global education at California colleges; (4) examination of various national and state consortia surveys and year-end reports to bring a national and regional focus to the data; and (5) evaluation of literature in the field (1990-1998) to produce theoretical support of the research findings. Survey responses indicate eighty-seven of the ninety-one reporting colleges offer at least one type of international and global education program; eighty-one colleges offer two or more. Appended are state and national consortia comparisons and printouts from the State Chancellor's database. An "Annotated Bibliography and General References" section contains a literature review; literature review topic index; annotated bibliography; Web sites; and a list of associations, organizations, and consortia.
