October 2013 – New Resources

We hope that the fall semester has been progressing nicely at your institutions. As we approach International Education Week in mid-November, we invite you to utilize our resources to think about and advance your institution’s internationalization strategy.

This month, several contributors added new resources.

AIEA has added a link to the organization’s archived summaries of listserv responses to critical questions in the field. The most recent addition includes samples of student placement agreements for international internships. Other topics include international office structures, faculty Fulbrights, and the impact of internationalization. This resource can be found in the Institutional Structures resource section as a web resource.  They have also added an archived webinar recording titled, The Internationalized Campus, that looks at supporting international students’ academic success and persistence. This can be located as a web resource in the Comprehensive Internationalization resource section.

NAFSA has added two new publications.  The first is  Leveraging Accreditation and Quality Assurance in International Higher Education, which explains how accreditation presents an opportunity to foster internationalization on campuses and can be found for free download in the Comprehensive Internationalization resource section.  The second, Internships, Service Learning, & Volunteering Abroad, provides specific resources to help in developing comprehensive work abroad programs as part of the changing nature of education abroad offerings. This resource can be found in the publications for fee section in the Education Abroad resource list.
