An International Experience Mandate for Undergraduates in a College of Health and Human Services: Initial Assessment

Donna M. Daly, Suzanne Baker, Stephen J. Williams

Abstract


Educators and student affairs professionals are responding to the call for internationalizing education to keep
pace with social, political, and economic globalization. This article provides a qualitative description of the
transformation and globalization of an undergraduate college. Successful implementation of a college-wide
international initiative is derived from the congruence between an academic agenda, student personal goals, and
an institutional priority of globalization. Ultimately, an international experience benefits students academically
and in personal growth and maturity.
