What is Internationalization?
At CHHS we define internationalization as a process of integrating international/intercultural dimensions into all aspects of the college experience. This is a shared process including administration, faculty, students, and staff in all departments as co-creators of activities and resources (e.g. study abroad, exchange programs, outreach, international student recruitment, research, and curricula development) that facilitate short, intermediate, and long-term outcomes indicating positive impact (WKU Steering Committee on Internationalization, 2009).
