Who Should Attend:

The Institute is ideal for:
Those who have been formally designated as the leader for internationalization on their campus, typically known as the senior international officer.
Those who are leading internationalization from within a single campus unit, such as a professional school.
Deans or associate deans who have internationalization in their portfolio of responsibilities.
For some institutions, a combination of these individuals may be appropriate, and teams are encouraged to apply.

Participants who complete the Institute will be able to:

Apply a comprehensive, versatile model of internationalization to the unique challenges and opportunities at their institution.
Work more effectively with their executive leadership by acquiring a more strategic approach to internationalization.
Raise the visibility and importance of internationalization by integrating it into their institution's mission and goals.
A team of seasoned international experts will serve as instructors. The three-day institute will be followed by an ACE-supervised project, where each participant will apply the learning of the Institute to a particular challenge or opportunity on their campus. ​
