Getting Involved
Faculty play a critical role in students' development, and research shows that your endorsement of international and intercultural engagement can often be the push a student needs to seek this value-added experience. There are many ways faculty can support students' intercultural development, including:
  • Bringing international students to the class 
  • Encouraging domestic students with international experiences to share in class
  • Address the subject from a multicultural perspective
  • Encourage study or internship abroad
  • Direct a faculty-led study abroad program
  • Bring international lecturers to campus
  • Teach abroad at a partner institution
