Omtale International Education at Community Colleges
This book brings
together distinguished scholars, community college practitioners, and emerging
leaders to expand upon existing theories, provide reflection on practice, and
demonstrate the dynamic nature of community college internationalization. There
is a special challenge for United States community colleges to move from
selected international programs that impact a few students to sustainable
change that influences the entire college community. A key importance is realization that reform
is not based on chance, but on intentional designs that are intended to guide
future endeavors. The research, case
studies, and experiences of the authors in this book are both inspiring and
critical in the quest to encourage an academic shift for long-term change that
promotes international literacy as an integral component of the community
college and celebrates the needs of the changing local communities.
