New Report Offers Strategies for Increasing Internationalization Efforts at HBCUs

Creating-Global-Citizens copyThe American Council on Education in conjunction with the Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement has released a new report entitled Creating Global Citizens: Challenges and Opportunities for Internationalization at HBCUs.

Over an 18-month period, the American Council on Education worked closely with seven HBCUs to create internationalization teams, conduct a review and analysis of their current internationalization efforts, prepare a self-study report, and develop a strategic plan for advancing internationalization at their institutions. The institutions who participated in the project were Dillard University, Howard University, Lincoln University in Missouri, North Carolina A&T State University, Savannah State University, Tuskegee University, and Virginia State University. The new report presents a summary of the findings on how HBCUs can enhance internationalization programs and highlights successful strategies and initiatives that have been used to further internationalization at these institutions.
