College Goal: Internationalizing the Curriculum. White Paper.
Eith, Gary; Fye, Chuck
This paper asserts that internationalizing or globalizing the community college curriculum will be necessary to meet the emerging needs of an increasingly diverse U.S. workforce and employer demand for international communication skills. The paper discusses globalization, establishes a common base of understanding of where Lakeland Community College (LCC) is with regard to internationalizing the curriculum and other services, and reviews institutional and community resources that might be available and applied to achieve globalization objectives. This report also itemizes some of the regional socioeconomic and demographic forces at work in Ohio that might provide impetus for internationalizing the curriculum, including the growing ethnicity of Ohio; the extent of foreign owned businesses and corporations in Northeast Ohio and in the U.S.; the extent of American owned and international corporations that are expanding across the globe; growth in international trade; the Internet and instant communications networks across the globe; and growth in domestic and international tourism in Northeast Ohio. The document concludes with a review of LCC activities and a description of national, international and foundation resources related to internationalization of curriculum systems. (PGS)
