UMD Internationalization Initiative

Internationalization Goals

During fall semester 2013, the ILT identified campus goals related to internationalization. The internationalization review, a campus forum, and working groups addressing specific aspects of internationalization at UMD will provide a foundation for developing these goals. The ILT will then develop a systematic plan to achieve these identified goals. This plan will likely include a vision and mission for internationalization at UMD, action steps to achieve each of the identified goals, and objectives and measures to monitor achievement of the goals.

Internationalization Goals
April 2014

The University of Minnesota Duluth’s goals for internationalization closely align with campus goals identified in the 2011 Strategic Plan. These campus goals address 1) undergraduate education, 2) inclusive campus climate, 3) graduate education, 4) research and creative activities, 5) ties with the community, and 6) sustainable  infrastructure and resources.

The corresponding six goals for internationalization appear below:

Goal 1

UMD will support and increase participation in diverse, global, and intercultural curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities that prepare students to be globally competent citizens.

Goal 2

UMD will build an inclusive, welcoming and interactive campus by advancing international and intercultural perspectives in all aspects of campus life.

Goal 3

UMD will enhance graduate education to more fully integrate international and intercultural experiences.

Goal 4

UMD will expand internationally focused research, scholarship, and creative activities.

Goal 5

UMD will collaborate with the surrounding community to engage globally through strategic partnerships, student exchanges, research and creative activities, community-based learning, and public service.

Goal 6

UMD will create an organizational structure and provide sufficient human, financial and technological resources to support internationalization of the campus.
