  • ACE releases Mapping Internationalization on US campuses report

    The American Council on Education (ACE) released its 2017 report on internationalization on US campuses June 14, 2017, with the headline that international is now a significantly more important component of overall institutional activity than previously for more than three-quarters of participating campuses.  Key Findings include:

    -  Internationalization is increasingly an administrative-intensive endeavor, coordinated by a single office and/or a senior international officer. More institutions are implementing policies, procedures and planning processes to guide internationalization efforts.

    -  While student mobility has consistently been a focus of internationalization efforts, the 2016 data indicate an increasingly sharp emphasis on this area relative to other aspects of internationalization. The level of support international students receive once they arrive on campus, while trending upward, remains a concern.

    -  Though the curriculum and co-curriculum take a backseat to student mobility in terms of stated priorities for internationalization, an increasing percentage of institutions are implementing academic and co-curricular policies and programming that facilitate on-campus global learning on a broader scale and among a broader base of students.

    -  More institutions are offering internationally focused faculty professional development opportunities. However, the faculty-related data raise questions about the recognition of faculty as key drivers of internationalization.
