February 2012 Resources

Check out four new resources this month:

AAC&U has posted the newly released report, A Crucible Moment: College Learning & Democracy’s Future, from the National Task Force on Civic Learning and Democratic Engagement under the Mission and Strategic Planning and the Community Engagement and Outreach sections.  A Crucible Moment was prepared at the invitation of the U.S. Department of Education under the leadership of the Global Perspective Institute, Inc. (GPI) and AAC&U. The publication was developed with input from a series of national roundtables involving leaders from all parts of the higher education and civic renewal communities.

AIEA‘s Presidential Perspectives Series features a new article by Troy University Chancellor Jack Hawkins, Jr. entitled, Partnerships Fuel Internationalization. Please visit the Comprehensive Internationalization and Institutional Structures section under Free Publications to read it.

AIRC posted a free publication about the modifications to the standards of compliance for international student recruitment agencies in the International Student and Scholar resource section. The Standards were adopted by the AIRC Board of Directors on January 4, 2012 and can be read on the AIRC website.

IIE launched two new white papers from this initiative: Expanding U.S. Study Abroad to India and Expanding U.S. Study Abroad to Turkey. Both reports begin with an overview of the current state of the higher education sector in their country of focus, with a particular focus on the current state of U.S. study abroad to these countries. The second portion of the report focuses on existing study abroad programs available to U.S. students, and challenges and recommendations for expanding study abroad to India and Turkey. Hard copies of the reports are available for purchase at www.iiebooks.org, or you can download PDFs of the reports at www.iie.org/publications.
