energy-saving strategies," says LaFleur. "There is also a focus on
developing intercultural competence through the interactions
between students."

Establishing Campuses Abroad
While some institutions have strengthened their international
partnerships through online collaboration, others have done so
by establishing a physical presence abroad. With seven campuses
in four countries, the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT)
created a global network of campuses that all follow the same curriculum and are held to the same academic standards. The institution has carefully leveraged its technology infrastructure to keep
its two New York campuses connected with its global campuses.
The first global campus, NYIT-Abu Dhabi, was founded in the
United Arab Emirates in 2005 as the first licensed and accredited
American university in the country. NYIT-Nanjing opened its
doors two years later, followed by NYIT-Vancouver in 2009. Most
recently, NYIT opened a second campus in China in collaboration
with the Communication University of China (CUC) in Beijing.
"Like many other institutions [that] have expanded globally,
NYIT saw the opportunity to expand and diversify our base of

New Models of
Cross-Border Education
As part of a strategy to make sure global learning is really
available to all students, the State University of New York
offers a number of micro-credentials, which "verify, validate
and attest that specific skills and/or competencies have
been achieved; are endorsed by the issuing institution; [are]
developed through established faculty governance process-

students, particularly in regions where high growth was possible,"
says Mark C. Hampton, NYIT's vice president for enrollment and
enterprise analytics. "There is and has been a high level of demand
for many of NYIT's signature strengths...in international markets,
and global campuses and partnerships have been a very good way
to establish a presence in those markets, and to create a pipeline of
students from those markets to [our] New York campuses."
One of NYIT's main goals in establishing global campuses was
to build name recognition in global markets and leverage that
familiarity to recruit students from those markets to the New York
campuses, says Hampton.
He cautions that establishing a physical campus may not be
the best option for all markets. Instead, other models of crossborder education, such as dual-degree programs, might be more
attractive. This was the case for the NYIT School of Engineering
and Computing Sciences, which works with Brazil's Centro
Universitário FEI to offer dual-degree programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and engineering management.
"Global partnerships with well-known institutional partners in
other countries focused around select programs that leverage the
partner institutions' strengths might be a better strategy in some
regions than [establishing] global campuses," says Hampton.
"In many cases, these kinds of partnerships afford much more
flexibility, and at a much reduced cost of administration."
While not every type of partnership will work for every institution or degree program, U.S. higher education institutions are
pursuing innovative models that build on the strengths of both
partners. With options ranging from dual-degree programs to
collaborative technology, most U.S. institutions can likely find an
approach to both benefit their students on campus and attract
international students and scholars. n

es; and are designed to be meaningful and high quality."
Micro-credentials are often delivered virtually to students
around the world through vehicles such as massive open
online courses (MOOC) and are often recognized in specific
industries. For more information, visit bit.ly/IE-SUNY.
The University of Arizona (UA) has established a worldwide
network of micro-campuses for the international delivery
of collaborative degree programs on the campuses of
their international partners. The partner university allows
UA to use its physical campus and classrooms in order to
deliver educational instruction. Local students earn both a
UA degree and a degree from the partner university, while
UA students from the United States are also able to study
abroad at UA's micro-campuses. For more information,
