CCIE DUES FOR 2012-2013

CCIE wants to remind all our members that, now, more than ever, it is important to pay your dues. CCIE dues are collected on the academic year — July 1 – June 30. It is critical that every member be current with their dues in order for CCIE to continue to support activities such as the Newsletter, Web–Page, Workshops, and Student Scholarships. Please process your 2013–2014 dues. During our economic crisis, CCIE does appreciate the effort that all of you are doing to help support international education at our colleges. However, advocacy needs to continue on many levels, and support of CCIE is central in this process.

LESSONS FROM ABROAD STUDENT CONFERENCES

The objectives of the conferences are to offer opportunities to reflect on experiences gained for study abroad returnees and international students who will soon be study abroad returnees to their home countries. The conferences allow students from regional colleges to reflect on their recent international experiences, connect with other study abroad alumni, network with professionals from international organizations, and gain important skills for continual learning and application in their future career and academic paths. The keynote presentation will offer insight into how study abroad translates socially, academically, and professionally. Other conference highlights include an “Opportunities Fair” of internationally-focused organizations, various panel discussions and workshops on resume-building, graduate schools, career and volunteer opportunities, job interviewing and more!

This is a great opportunity for students to network, so we ask that they dress business casual and bring several copies of their resume.

SAN MATEO DISTRICT IS AWARDED 100,000 STRONG CHINA PILOT SITE

California Gov. Jerry Brown, at a ceremony in Beijing with US Ambassador to China Gary Locke and various California business executives, announced the creation of a new program to send California community college students to study in China beginning in 2014. This exchange Furthers the 100,000 Strong Foundation’s Mission which former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton launched earlier this year to diversify and dramatically expand the number of US students learning Mandarin and studying in China.

A $250,000 gift from the Florence Fang Family Foundation will send dozens of students from the San Mateo Community College District to China. The study abroad program is expected to build in the coming years and expand to other community colleges throughout California. “The best way for students to learn about China is to go to China,” Gov. Brown said. “Through this program, students will forge great friendships in one of the world’s most creative and dynamic countries.”

Carola McGiffert, president of the 100,000 Strong Foundation, said of the community college program: “This pilot program with San Mateo is so critical to the mission of the 100,000 Strong Foundation. Approximately 43 percent of American undergraduates are enrolled in community colleges, but community college students represent less than 3 percent of those who study abroad. We must ensure that this important part of our future workforce is prepared to engage constructively with China, our fastest growing trade partner.”

Gov. Brown’s announcement came as part of his week long visit to China to promote Chinese investment in California, particularly in the areas of clean energy, electric vehicles and 21st century infrastructure. In addition to meeting with several high-level Chinese officials, the governor will attend the opening of a California trade office in Shanghai. Also on the trip are Bay Area business leaders and economic development officials.

California in particular has an increasingly important relationship with China. In 2012, California exported roughly $14 billion in goods and services to China within high-skill, high-wage and high-value-added sectors such as computers and electronic products. An October 2012 report by the Asia Society found that China invested $1.3 billion in California in the last decade.

INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS MODULES PROJECT: INTERNATIONALIZING CURRICULUM WORKSHOP (INMP)

For two decades, CCIE member colleges have participated in INMP, which is an on-line simulation of international negotiation that allows community college faculty from across the curriculum to infuse an international perspective into their classes. This is a specific program to help ALL faculty in ALL disciplines internationalize their curriculum (http://www.icons.umd.edu/inp/index.html). Students negotiate on a range of international issues selected by the faculty members so that they can support the substance of their classes. Each participating classroom adopts the role of a different country and negotiates from the point of view of that country. At the conclusion of the project, students are familiar with the culture, economy, history and politics of other countries, the interrelationship of nations, the art of negotiation, and with the Internet. Community college faculty from all disciplines are invited to participate and former students acknowledge that this was an exceptional learning experience as they not only learn more about current issues and negotiations in general, but that they become more aware of the ways in which such issues affect them personally.

All CCIE college members are invited to a FREE workshop on Internationalizing the Curriculum, at Whittier College. The Date will be announced shortly. At the Fall Workshop there is a chance to talk about important international issues, have a presentation by experts in the field, and meet with others who will be involved in the Spring simulation. For additional information, contact Rosalind.

LOS ANGELES URBAN POLICY ROUNDTABLE SPECIAL IMPACT AWARDS FOR WLAC Students

The Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable announced its special Impact Awards on Friday, June 14. The awards are part of its Young Scholars award program. The awards were given to three students in the International Study Abroad program at West Los Angeles College. The program was initiated by Dr. Don Culton and administered by Professor Josefina Culton and the student participants learn and enrich their Spanish studies at a university in Spain. The students chosen for the awards will use their Spanish studies to enrich the life and culture of their communities and to further promote inter-ethnic relationships in Los Angeles. The Impact Awards program supports organizations and individuals working in Los Angeles County and other cities most underserved communities. Wells Fargo Foundation is a major partner with the Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable’s Impact Micro Award Program. “School budget cutbacks, and the elimination of vital school programs make it even more imperative that we assist teachers and students with funding to reimburse them for their classroom and project expenses,” says Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson, “The Impact Micro Award Program aims to fill that chronic education need.” For Information, http://www.ktym.com.

IIE WHITE PAPER: INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION AS AN INSTITUTIONAL PRIORITY HOW CAN TRUSTEES HELP MAKE "INTERNATIONAL" A PART OF EVERYONE'S EDUCATION

The Institute of International Education has released an updated version of its most recent white paper, "International Education as an Institutional Priority: What Every College and University Trustee Should Know." The white paper is intended help U.S. college and university presidents secure buy-in from Trustees and other leaders who may not be thinking globally, yet, and to help those who are doing so to articulate their vision.

To remain competitive, our nation's higher education must keep pace with the rapid globalization of our society over the last few decades, made possible by ever more rapid flows of ideas, technology, people, and information.

Leading higher education institutions have recognized this by "going global" and internationalizing their campuses. Yet surprisingly few colleges and universities make "international" a central part of what it means to become educated.

This paper distills some of the most essential information about international education that Trustees need to know as they address their institutions' strategic growth and planning, and help them formulate their institutional foreign policies.

CITY COLLEGE OF SAN FRANCISCO

Jill Heffron, Study Abroad Programs Coordinator, was invited by Michael Roggow from Bronx Community College to speak at the 55th Annual Council for the Study of Community Colleges conference at the San Francisco Hilton. The subject of the pre-conference session was "Advancing International Education: Fueling Global Discourse". My fellow panel member was originally supposed to be our own Dr. Rosalind Latiner Raby, but she had to bow-out due to injury. She was replaced by Ron Opp from the University of Toledo, who talked about the annual overseas program they organize for their graduate students to give them a chance to share discourse with graduate students overseas. The focus of my presentation was a "case study" of the CCSF Study Abroad Program over the last twenty years, with anecdotal evidence on student composition, reasons for studying abroad, trends and the benefits of overseas studies.

COLLEGE OF THE CANYONS STUDENTS TRAVEL TO NICARAGUA TO PROMOTE LITERACY

Five College of the Canyons students traveled to Nicaragua in June as part of a literacy delegation with the Santa Clarita Valley International Program (SCVIP) in order to complete a global collaboration project for needy families living in an impoverished community near Granada. The delegation, which includes members of COC student-run organizations Alpha Mu Gamma (AMG), Associated Student Government (ASG) and Phi Theta Kappa (PTK), also collected donations in order to provide students at Miravalle School with school supplies, which can be costly for most families. “Through this project, COC students learned about local and global sustainability issues and will have the opportunity to make an impact globally by giving back to a community in need,” said Dr. Claudia Acosta, COC professor and liaison for international education at the college. Under the direction of COC Biology professor Dr. Miriam Golbert, PTK students raised enough funds to purchase a water tank during Fall 2011. “Thanks to the hard work of our students, more than 600 people living in Granada will now have access to water,” said Acosta. During the five-day trip, the group of students also meet with former Nicaraguan President Enrique Bolaños for a private meeting in his Masaya home, former Vice Minister of Education Tulio Tablada and U.S. Embassy Cultural Affairs Officer John Fer. Four of the students traveled to Nicaragua thanks to travel scholarships provided by ASG. SCVIP is a local non-profit organization focused on promoting and developing mutually beneficial strategic alliances and international goodwill between the people of Santa Clarita and people of international cities with “Local to Global” projects, programs, and partnerships. Former Santa Clarita Mayor Carl Boyer joined students in collecting donations such as school supplies, shoes and notebooks prior to their abroad experience.

WEST VALLEY COLLEGE

West Valley College participated in a series of workshops that explored Global Citizenship. In addition to an interactive session at the University of San Francisco with students examining human rights activism, a lecture on “Human Rights: Does People Power Work?” at San Jose State University, the West Valley College workshop explored the role of global citizenship at community colleges in the 21st century. Attending the workshop was Champa Patel, Head of Activism, Amnesty International UK, who serves as a faculty member at the Salzburg Global Seminar’s Global Citizenship Program. The West Valley College one-day workshop on “The 21st Century Educational Institution: Global Citizenship, Civic Engagement, and Student Success.” was part of an ongoing initiative co-organized by West Valley College, San Jose State University, and the Salzburg Global Seminar to incorporate coherent global citizenship programs in secondary schools, community colleges and at the university level. The workshop addressed questions such as: How does high-mobility, intercultural connections, and globalization impact our students and our pedagogy? What is the role of global citizenship in community colleges? How can global education emphasize the civic significance of preparing students with knowledge and for action? Can global and civic engagement affect student success? Peter Rose, Sophia Smith Professor of Sociology and Anthropology Emeritus and Senior Fellow, Kahn Liberal Arts Institute at Smith College and another long-time GCP Faculty member, also spoke at the workshop. This series of events coordinated by three GCP partner institutions is an example of how the Global Citizenship Program seeks to positively impact the lives of the students, professors, and administrators who attend sessions in Salzburg and to lay the foundation for ongoing institutional engagement and change.

“The Salzburg spirit is still very much alive here [in California],” added West Valley College Art History Professor, Cynthia Reiss, who attended the 48th session of the GCP: Colleges and Universities as Sites of Global Citizenship in 2011. http://www.salzburgglobal.org/current/ISP-b.cfm?nav=home
