Mobilizing Synergies Between Internationalization and DEI

10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. ET (9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. CT) For the past year, campus internationalization and DEI leaders have convened in an ACE community of practice to develop actionable strategies and programs that further equity, promote intercultural understanding, and foster belonging in a diverse campus community.  This year’s Internationalization Collaborative will highlight the initiatives these thought leaders developed and implemented, explore successes and challenges, and examine tangible outcomes and next steps. In truly “collaborative” spirit, participants will be invited to workshop their own ideas and initiatives, and receive feedback and advice from campus executives on strategies for implementation.  The work of this year’s Collaborative will inform an update to ACE’s 2008 publication, At Home in the World (PDF).
