This past summer, the ACE Internationalization steering subcommittee converted feedback from department visits into draft goals. Those goals have been going through a process of refinement and prioritization. Heading into the fall, the steering committee is developing action items related to each goal and metrics to determine how progress towards each goal will be measured.
Looking ahead, UC Santa Cruz Lab steering committee members plan to attend the final meeting with fellow representatives from the 16th Lab cohort of institutions in December at ACE headquarters in Washington D.C. There they will share a draft of the campus’s internationalization goals to gain additional feedback from their cohort peers.
In late winter 2020, UC Santa Cruz will also host the campus’s ACE Lab mentor, Dr. Gil Latz, vice provost for global strategies and international affairs at the Ohio State University and an additional ACE staff member for the Lab’s final peer review site-visit. These experts in the field of internationalization will spend two days on campus conducting meetings with senior leadership, faculty, administrators, and students to compile a report for the steering committee that will address the state of internationalization at UC Santa Cruz and make recommendations for future work.
