CCIE MOURNS THE LOSS OF PRESIDENT CHRIS MCCARTHY

The entire California community college community was saddened by the sudden loss of President Chris McCarthy. Chris was the President of Napa Valley college, and the President of CCIE since 2007. He was a sincere advocate of international education and CCIE and a personal friend of mine since 1985. I first met Chris when he was a faculty at Los Angeles Harbor College and I had just started working at the Institute for International Education at the Los Angeles District. Chris worked to include different ethnic, racial and social class voices in his English classes and was among the first community college faculty to lead semester length study abroad programs. He remained a champion for international education at all of the colleges that he worked at throughout the decades. CCIE sends our condolences to the entire Napa Valley Community.

Reflections from Donald Culton

You have lots of acquaintances in life, hopefully many friends, but in your entire life you only have a few best friends. Today I have one less. Chris McCarthy often wondered how he had gone from playing a guitar in a bar in Alaska to President of Napa Valley College. He was thankful and overjoyed at landing a full time teaching gig at Harbor College. To him that was real success. Destiny or just plain competence pulled him into administration, though he would often joke, asking why had he given up the classroom to put up with budget and personnel problems. He said his greatest educational experience was twice leading Harbor students to Cambridge, England for a semester abroad. His continuing commitment to international understanding was shown by his leadership as President of California Colleges for International Education since 2007. He will be missed by many for good reason. He was a genuinely nice guy.

INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS MODULE PROJECT (INMP) & U.S. INSTITUTE OF PEACE WORKSHOP

All CCIE college members were invited to a special workshop on Internationalizing the Curriculum, with key-note speaker, David Smith, Director, U.S. Institute for Peace. The theme of the workshop was Causes of War: Paths to Peace. The event was sponsored by the Center for Active Learning in International Studies (CALIS); United States Institute of Peace (USIP), Whittier College INP (international negotiation project) and CCIE. This program helped celebrate the 20 years that the community college INMP program has been in existence.

The USIP offers an annual summer community college seminar. For information: www.usip.org/education-training/domestic/college-and-university-programs/global-peace-and-security-commuity-coll Also at this site is information on the Peace, Conflict, and Security in Community Colleges (PCSCC) Special Interest Group. The SIG is formed with the objective of supporting community college faculty, staff, and administrators who are teaching and promoting subjects and topics that broadly relate to peace, conflict, and security. Those that work closely with community colleges are also invited to affiliate. PCSCC supports efforts at improving curriculum (content and pedagogy) as well as other strategies used by community colleges in promoting domestic and international peace, conflict resolution, and security. PCSCC is not affiliated with any other organization rather it aims to meet at times when other entities are convening. Meetings are informal and focus on promoting the field in community colleges and working towards a vibrant and interdisciplinary effort in community colleges. Founding members are:

Jennifer Batton, Cuyahoga Community College; Susan Lohwater, Cuyahoga Community College; Paul Hanson, Cuyahoga Community College; Carol Franklin, Cuyahoga Community College; Jessica Szabla, Kent State University; Farane Farazdaghi, Golden West College; Abbie Jenks, Greenfield Community College; Greg Rabb, Jamestown Community College; Barbara Thorngren, Nashua Community College; and David J. Smith, U.S. Institute of Peace

The INMP 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. 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 will be 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. If your faculty would like to participate in the Spring 2010 simulation, please contact Rosalind.

"REASONS TO STUDY IN CHINA" BY COLIN SPEAKMAN, CONSULTANT ON CHINA INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

Community College Models: Globalization and Higher Education Reform, Edited by Raby, Rosalind Latiner and Valeau, Edward J. has been published by Springer Publishers. ISBN: 978-1-4020-9476-7. Information can be found at http://www.springer.com/education/comparative+education/book/978-1-4020-9476-7

I think we all recognize the arguments for study of Mandarin (surely now the most important language after English for the world to study?), the globalization aspects of Chinese economic development/international business, and international relations in the context of Chinese foriegn policy (US-China axis).

However I have long detected a rise in interest in studying "Chinese Culture, Beliefs, Philosophy" as well among US students and indeed "our" students once in China.

While I pitch this in a practical way "Understanding Chinese culture will help understand Chinese business and economics", there's no doubt that study of the culture (and related) for its own sake is coming more in promenance.

I think some of this has resulted from "a perceived failure of western values" in the recent/current global financial crisis.

In addition, a timely new book by Martin Ja9ques "When China Rules the World" alludes to the importance of the cultural focus. Jacques argues that China is not so much a country now as it is a culture, a civilization. Its ability to assimilate and change the cultures with which it comes in contact is the key characteristic of its existence as a uniquely complex nation with a long, multifaceted evolutionary path.

The theme of the enduring impact of Chinese culture is picked up below in some extracts from the current conferences celebrating Confucius' birthday on Monday September 28

"If human beings are to survive, they have to go back some 2,500 years, to the era of Confucius, according to Professor Xavier Walter"

"The central ideas of filial piety and fraternity as emphasized by Confucius connote a kind of responsibility based on experience and studies, and are eminently superior to individualism as enshrined by the West."

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT CORNER

AACC LETTER TO DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY STUDENT AND EXCHANGE VISITOR PROGRAM

AACC cosigned a letter to the Department of Homeland Security's Student and Exchange Visitor Program, along with the other five major presidential associations (ACE, AAU, NAICU, NASULGC, AASCU), raising concerns with proposed increases of fees for the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) and related policy changes. SEVP has proposed raising the fee that international students pay to support SEVIS from $100 to $200. Fee increases for colleges would be even more significant. Schools wishing to be recertified for the SEVIS system would have to pay $1,700 for the certification petition fee and $655 for each necessary site visit, up from $230 and $350, respectively. The higher education letter objected to the fact that DHS is proposing to fund all SEVIS related enforcement costs through user fees. The letter also raises concern with the extensive increase in the breadth of data relating to international students that institutions would have to maintain and provide to the DHS upon request. See for details: http://www.aacc.nche.edu/Template.cfm?section=GovernmentRelations

SMC RECEIVES FEDERAL GRANT FOR INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION

Santa Monica College received a two-year U.S. Department of Education Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Title VI A Grant totaling nearly $180,000 that will be used to develop a comprehensive international studies program. The grant comes in the third year of SMC’s global citizenship initiative, a pioneering crusade that seeks to foster in students an understanding of international, intercultural and ecological issues, as well as an understanding of economic factors and human rights and environmental issues. The initiative distinguishes itself from other colleges and universities, however, by going beyond an international studies program and incorporating volunteer work and the cultivation of a sense of global responsibility. In the 2 /12 years since the global citizenship initiative was launched, the college has taken major steps toward realizing its goal. The college has added a global citizenship requirement (one class) for students to receive an Associate of Arts degree. It has strengthened its Study Abroad program and, through the Associated Students, provided scholarships for low-income students to participate in these overseas study trips. It launched a Global Connections and other internationally themed lecture series. And it has sent SMC faculty and other employees to several countries to study international, cultural and global environmental issues. New programs are being planned for China and Turkey with the assistance of the grant funds.
