ACE Internationalization Lab

UC Santa Cruz, along with 10 other universities across the U.S., has elected to participate in the 16th cohort (2018-20) of the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Internationalization Laboratory which began in late August 2018. The campus internationalization effort aims to better prepare our undergraduate and graduate students to meaningfully engage in an increasingly interconnected world.
