Current Status:

In winter quarter 2014, One World conducted faculty, staff, and student surveys, and hosted two campus-wide forums. During winter quarter 2014, One World members met with college deans and chairs, and also participated in the Six Questions conversations. Based on all of the information that the committee gathered in its research on comprehensive internationalization and on the commentary and data gathered at Western, it will present models for internationalizing the curriculum to the Faculty Senate and the Provost in May 2014.
