Internationalizing the Community College Experience
Malkan, Rajiv; Pisani, Michael J.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v35 n11 p825-841 2011
September 11, 2001 heightened the need for America to train a new generation of leaders with the ability to navigate different cultures and to succeed in the international marketplace. This paper seeks to place the community college firmly in the mix of developing such leaders through the internationalization of the community college experience. Specifically, we suggest that a focus on the 3Is--Internet (technology in the classroom); Internationalization of the curriculum (encouraging international activities in the classroom); and Interdependency (understanding of other cultures, languages, and customs)--through the illustration of case studies, will create a more educated global citizenry. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
