International Educator - May/June 2018 - 36

The NC State European Center in Prague
is a hub for both students and faculty
who are forging new global partnerships.

abroad center. The center enables engagement
with local faculty and offers coursework for students in all majors, including science, technology,
engineering, and math (STEM).
The role of NC State Global has changed
since management of the center was transferred
from the College of Design. Whereas NC State
Global used to primarily provide logistical support for study abroad, they are now taking a lead in the academic
sphere, especially in the development of coursework. Over spring
break 2017, 15 faculty members who were interested in developing new courses went to Prague to attend a global symposium.
They further developed their syllabi and made local connections
for their own research in what Li describes as "intentional, strategic partnership building for research."
Funding for Global Activities

With increased financial support from the chancellor's office, NC
State's study abroad scholarships increased from approximately
$220,000 in 2014 to $530,000 in 2018-an increase of nearly 140 percent. NC State Global also set a target of $1 million in scholarships.
Li says they initially encountered resistance from NC State's
University Advancement department, which was wary of letting other offices approach potential donors. By allowing the

advancement office to take credit for any fundraising, NC Global added three global funding
categories for donors to choose from when
allocating their gifts: study abroad scholarship
support, global strategic initiatives supporting
faculty travel, and international student support.
"It's still very early, but at least now it's on people's radars that they can donate money to global
activities," Li says.

Experiential Learning

Although international activities at the University of Tampa (UT)
began in the early 1990s, it was the adoption of a quality enhancement plan (QEP), Building International Competence, in 2005 that
set the stage for comprehensive internationalization at UT, which
was recognized with the 2016 Simon Award. The institution leveraged its accreditation process through the Southern Association
of College and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) to
make internationalization a strategic priority on campus.
The first QEP helped establish the International Programs
Office (IPO), which oversees education abroad, international
student and scholar services, and on-campus global programming.
It also provided support for international faculty development

Best Practices for Campus Internationalization
"In addition to having strengths in global
education, we have nationally recognized
strengths in community-based learning. So
[the idea behind] our Global-Local Initiative is
build on those two areas and offer possibilities
for students for sequential, cumulative
experiences. ... We have this Global-Local
partnership now, where a student may be
interested in public health and will, for example,
do an internship in Monte Verde, Costa Rica-
that's one of our hubs abroad-and will then
come back, reflect upon it, and then may do
an internship or community-based learning
course focused on public health in Holyoke or
Springfield. We want to offer these pathways
to students to have two comparative globallocal community-based experiences. We want
students to see that the global isn't just over
there. The global can be here too."

Offer services to
students that also
support the local
community.
"We started a passport office on
campus. The local post office is
overwhelmed, and our students
spent a lot of time waiting to get a
passport. Seventy percent of those
we serve are our own students and
their families, but we also serve the
community. That's a way for us to
recruit local people to participate
in our friendship and host family
programs. The local engagement
piece has been very important and
the passport office also generated
some funding for international
student scholarships."
-Bailian Li,
NC State University

Communicate with
parents to support
internationalization efforts.
"Not only is it important for parents to support
their student's decision to internationalize
their degree, but it is equally important to
make parents aware of problems that might
arise throughout the journey or process. We
begin our rapport with parents at admission
open houses and continue reaching out to
them through a communication plan that
includes predeparture, health and wellness
information, orientation, and scans of the
external environment. We reach out to parents
through traditional approaches including email,
face-to-face meetings, a parent portal, Skype,
and phone conversations. Including parents as
a well-defined stakeholder group helps build
trust and improves communication during a
critical moment."
-Marca Bear, University of Tampa
