Fischer, Karin
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n10 pB8 Oct 2008
For many community colleges, global is the new local as they begin study-abroad programs and other international strategies. This article discusses how community colleges are pursuing a variety of strategies to give their students an international edge. Some go for greater numbers of international students, while others are after stronger ties with immigrant groups or multinational firms in their region to provide students with globally relevant volunteer experiences or internships. Still others have developed certificate programs for students who complete several courses with an international perspective.
