Internationalization Goals

UMD Rockstar students high-fivingDuring 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.
