The Center for International Affairs invites the campus community to review and discuss the current draft of Phase II of the plan for internationalization. Phase II of the plan for internationalization, which can be read in full here, has been developed incorporating and building upon the existing guiding principles of Phase I, the achievements of the past four years, and the changing needs of CWRU and its constituents. The Center hosted two open forums where recommendations for Phase II of the plan for internationalization were presented and the campus community was invited to deliberate and provide input:
In January, 2012, the CWRU community adopted the first ever Plan for Internationalization (Phase I). By collaborating with and supporting faculty, staff, and students, many of the measurable recommendations set forth in the Phase I have been met or are on target to be met within the coming years. Moreover, CWRU’s vision and mission as set forth in CWRU’s new strategic plan 2013-2018 Think Beyond the Possible demonstrates a continuing commitment to promoting international endeavors and expanding CWRU on the world stage.
Phase II of the Plan for Internationalization concentrates more on graduate and professional students, research, and alumni. In addition, Phase II contains several specific recommendations—such as the recommendation regarding communication—that will provide the infrastructure and support to move the university towards its objective of fully realizing its international potential.
