Timeline Specifics

The Internationalization Lab will complete several milestones over the next year. Below is the timeline for completion of these milestones.

Fall 2011

1.      1. Leadership team agrees on common definition of internationalization (Task #1 from Charge Letter)

2.      2. Subcommittees form, agree on tasks and objectives

3.      3. Begin inventory activities

a.  What data and information do we need that benchmarks our current range of
internationalization activities, climate, outcomes, and goals?

b.  What data and information do we have?

c.  Initial discussion of how we fill in the gaps.

                                  i.      Provide questions to Student Satisfaction Survey for inclusion in next round of

                                 ii.      Identify other sources of primary data – faculty, alumni, and external
     constituents.  Begin formulating methods for gathering desired data
     and information

4.       4. Begin and complete draft review of college, department, and programs’ university planning documents,
       mission statements, assessment plans, and other documents for internationalization/global competency
       information and commitments. 

5.       5. Begin formulating communications plans

6.       6. Begin review of best practices in international student recruitment and retention


Spring 2012        

1.       1. February 2, 2011 – ACE Lab Cohort Meeting,  Washington, DC

2.       2. Continue inventory activities:

a.  Continue assessing data/information needs and benchmarking current activity.

b.  Formulate further survey, focus group, and community meetings

3.       3. Learning Goals and Curriculum: review College, school, departmental, and other academic programs’
        academic planning documents to identify internationalization and global competency goals. Drawing
        on ACE/FIPSE Project on Assessing International Learning, determine how current goals line up with
        global competency outcomes.

4.       4. Internal Communications:

a.  Meet with Faculty Senate, Staff Senate, ASUW, colleges, and other constituencies internal to UW

5.       5. External Communications and Outreach:

a.  Determine feasibility of international faculty and students on campus visiting communities
and international visitors to the Laramie campus offering presentations in other

b.  Begin outreach activities to communities to do needs/wants assessments

6.       6. Site visits to peer institutions for discussions of best practices in international student

7.       7. Inventory completed

8.       8. Provide to Provost Allen and President Buchanan a mid-term report that incorporates the inventory,
        initial assessments of the campus and outreach climates (with further survey data refining that
        assessment in a subsequent report, as described below), and a timeline for the final year of the
        internationalization team effort.

    1.  Campus Climate Report completed.  NOTE:  The Leadership Team requests a slight shift in the
         timeline for reporting on the Campus Climate.  In the initial charge from Academic Affairs, task
         #3.2 was outlined as:

  a.    “3.  Provide to me and President Buchanan a mid-term report, due in May 2012, that
  includes (1) an inventory or audit of current international activities and opportunities,
  (2) an assessment of the university’s climate for these activities, and (3) a list of
   milestones with a timeline for the final months of the project. 

                                      i.   A key information resource for the Campus Climate report (which the Campus
      Climate Subcommittee will coordinate) is the UW Student Satisfaction Survey. 
      The administrator, Dean Walter of Arts and Sciences, is willing to include the
      Team’s questions on that survey to assist in assessing the campus climate for
      internationalization.  However Dean Walter, who works with WYSAC Director Burke
      Grandjean on the analysis of the survey, has indicated that results are not
      available until the summer following the survey’s administration.  As such, we
      hope you will consider our request to submit a draft Campus Climate report in
      May 2012, followed by a more refined subsequent report in Summer 2012.
