to take the course, but they are required to
take the preparatory seminar that is a part
of it; there is also a four-credit version that
students are not required, but are encouraged, to take.
Since 2007 Wake Forest has also offered
credit-bearing courses for students to develop their intercultural skills. The courses have
been optional to date, but the faculty steering committee has discussed the possibility
of making them required. There are three
discrete courses: the predeparture course is
offered for 7 weeks, 2 hours a week for 50
minutes. Given the limited number of contact hours, says Duke, "The actual amount
they can learn about Italy or Spain or China
in that amount of time isn't that much in
the global scheme of things. But compared
with zero..." And at Boston College, an online course Gozik developed with the help of
an academic innovation grant will be offered
as a pilot for the first time this fall.

Help Faculty Infuse Global
Learning into the Campus
Curriculum
Gozik has also worked with faculty on the
nitty-gritty of incorporating a more global
perspective into the curriculum. He recently
led a workshop in Boston College's Lynch
School of Education for faculty interested
in finding ways to internationalize their
courses. "We spent most of the time analyzing syllabi that they brought, discussing
what kind of readings were being given, how
course assignments were constructed, and
how class discussions are handled," he says.
At the University of Richmond, programs
such as the Culture and Languages Across
the Curriculum program (CLAC) allow students to use their foreign language skills to
discuss topics in their discipline. The credits
are awarded in the various departments: for
example, one popular course is a CLAC biology course offered in Spanish. Others give

students the opportunity to discuss accounting practices in Korean or Japanese.
"It's not a language class, and we specifically tell the faculty 'No: we're not focusing
on grammar here, we're focusing on fluency,'" says Hoff. "The goal is to help students
become fluent in the terminology of their
discipline. They're using their language skills
to talk about something that most likely
they'll have to do in their future careers."
When possible, the classes are taught
by departmental faculty fluent in the target
language; when there is no such faculty available, international students may be hired to
help teach the class.
"This is another wonderful aspect, because we're utilizing the skills and expertise of
our international students, and further integrating them into the academic community,"
Hoff says. The benefits for students returning home from study abroad are clear. "It's
not geared just for them, but it's especially
