IIE Networker - Fall 2005 - 18

Special Feature: Study Abroad for Students of Color sifying exchange programs, Car ter (1991) makes a much bolder and more compelling argument. She states that the goals of international education— helping students understand another country’s history, geographic environment, values and traditions in order to foster better cultural understanding and world peace—will never be met if cultural diversity in these programs is ignored. 2 Carter argues that internationalism and domestic cultural diversity are concepts that should be compatible. Yet there is no realization of the “international” element in cultural diversity. Many minority communities speculate that Americans are more comfortable looking outside its borders for international cultural understanding rather than dealing with the “international” cultural diversity represented by ethnic communities in our own hometowns. Carter warns that if there is a true commitment to the concept of internationalism, it must be linked to a commitment to acknowledge, respect and teach the benefits of cultural diversity in our society. There must be an acceptance of the interrelatedness of cultural diversity and internationalism. Carter believes that if international educators do their jobs properly, every student will have the skills, perspective and understanding necessary to be a global citizen. If they don’t, they achieve the opposite of their stated goals: increased tendencies toward parochialism, protectionism, racism, aggressive competition and in the end continued international conflict and strife. If we as international educators wish to achieve the loftier goals of international education, we need to take the diversification of these programs very seriously. INVEST IN YOUR WORLD . . .
