How Is Internationalization Implemented? A Framework for Organizational Practice.
Schoorman, Dilys
The trend to internationalize has impacted upon most higher education institutions in the United States. This paper offers an organizational framework for understanding and implementing internationalization as an institution-wide process. The first section of the paper discusses and identifies the core characteristics required for all internationalization efforts, including institutional commitment to internationalization; organizational leadership; and having the necessary resources. The next section discusses and offers micro examples of internationalization of three types of on-campus activities: (1) university services (e.g., student services, information technology/management); (2) curriculum development (individual course development, language courses, infusion, area studies, cross-cultural and international courses, and global studies); and (3) social events (cultural activities, cross-cultural discussions, residence hall activities, and student involvement). A final section of the paper looks at the macro perspective of internationalization, exploring four types of relationships: recruitment of international students; increasing study abroad educational opportunities for both students and faculty; having student and faculty exchange programs; and encouraging international collaborative research programs.
