SAGE

International Education Committees 2015-2016

In 2008, the SAGE Advisory Committee was formed to provide input and guidance all aspects of study abroad. In 2010 the composition and scope of that group changed with the implementation of the Strategic Plan for International Education. The International Education Steering Committee was formed to get the work of the strategic plan underway. In September 2012, the College determined that the subcommittees would report directly to the College Learning Council.

The goals of the Strategic Plan for International Education are as follows:

  • GOAL 1:  Review and Enhance (Internationalize) the Curricula
  • GOAL 2:  Increase Short-Term Study Abroad Experiences
  • GOAL 3:  Increase Semester Study Abroad Experiences
  • GOAL 4:  Increase Student, Scholar, and Faculty Exchange Opportunities
  • GOAL 5:  Increase International Student Enrollment
  • GOAL 6:  Integrate International Students into the College and Local Community

As part of our work in international education, we surveyed Valencia faculty, staff, and students. Here is a copy of our working draft of the Competencies of a Global Citizen. You can read more about Internationalization at Valencia in The Grove!
