Study Abroad Programs: Elements of Effective International Student and Faculty Exchange Programs. CRB 09-006
Martin, Pam
California Research Bureau
As part of Assembly Concurrent Resolution 146 (Solorio), the California Research Bureau was asked to report on the programmatic and funding elements of an effective international student and faculty exchange program, including good practices nationally, with an emphasis on public higher education institutions in California and Mexico. The CRB identified five distinct elements: a) an assessment of demand for a program; b) the establishment of working relationships among institutions and stakeholders; c) written policies stating a clear commitment to academic goals, transparency, and communication; d) identification of long-term funding streams; and e) a plan for increasing enrollment. The report includes an overview of California-Mexico student and faculty study abroad programs currently being offered in California's public universities and community colleges. An appendix includes a tabular display of "cost to attend selected California colleges for international students as of Fall 2008." (Contains 52 endnotes, 4 charts, and 12 tables.)
