Comprehensive Internationalization of a Campus
November 15-16, 2010
St. Cloud State University’s Twin Cities Graduate Center
Maple Grove, Minnesota
The management of internationalizing the 21st century campus
requires a new approach. The role of presidents and provosts is
vital to successfully elevating this important goal from a
transactional to a transformational activity.
Other institutional leaders are welcome to attend provided they are accompanying
their president or provost.
Goals of the forum:
- Explore the challenges and opportunities involved in planning and achieving an internationalized focus that runs through every aspect of campus life
- Promote discussion of how to overcome limited resources and develop realistic strategies to form a new vision of comprehensive internationalization
- Develop the tools to turn the vision into reality
- Intensive and intentional knowledge-sharing
