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.

The ACE Internationalization Laboratory is a guided and collaborative strategic planning process which takes place over a two-year period. Working closely with ACE advisors, participating institutions will assemble an internationalization steering committee on their campus, comprehensively review and analyze current internationalization activities and articulate institutional goals, and formulate a strategic action plan to take internationalization efforts forward.

These pages will provide a repository of documents and information relevant to the campus’s participation in the lab as well as regular updates to the campus community about the leadership committee’s work as it progresses through this nearly two-year strategic planning process.
