Coast Community College District: A Five Year Strategic Plan. Exemplary International Programs.
This document outlines a strategic plan to achieve the central goal of promoting a global consciousness in the Coast Community College District (California) that. Central objectives of the plan are as follows: (1) to develop an educational environment which encourages college faculty, staff, and students to attain the global competence necessary for understanding and communicating with other cultures at all levels; and (2) to develop and promote activities that include, but are not limited to, internationalizing the curriculum, international exchanges and collaboration, programs and events to enhance global consciousness on the campus and in the community. There are seven primary mechanisms that facilitate campus internationalization: internationalization of the curriculum; faculty/staff development; international students and multicultural programs; study, work, and exchange programs; international projects; institutional linkages; and community linkages. Any successful plan must be continually assessed. The first phase of assessment is to be done in two parts: (1) an oral survey of key administrators, faculty, and staff involved in international projects to determine the status of current activities; and (2) a written survey of all district and college personnel to determine the expertise and interest that can be drawn on to implement the plan.
