Internationalization in higher education is a response to the globalization that is occurring in the world.
Ivy Tech's Focus on Student Success 2025 incorporates its Accelerating Greatness 2013 plan. One of its goals was to "Strengthen cultural diversity, global awareness, and international competitiveness among faculty, staff and students." On our campus, we are working on this objective by internationalizing the curriculum and campus activities.
The resources here are available to all faculty. Additionally, the campus holds multiple events throughout the year, included a dedicated week each November. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education as part of their efforts "to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences.
