On Thursday, March 10, 2016 Drew Gephart presented at the Institute of International Education (IIE)’s 2016 Best Practices Conference entitled “Lead Your Campus to the Top: Best Practices in Internationalizing the Campus”. The conference was held at UC Davis and focused on themes such as internationalization strategies, expanding participation in #StudyAbroad, and building international partnerships. Founded in 1919, the IIE is a private not-for-profit leader in the international exchange of people and ideas. In collaboration with governments, foundations and other sponsors, IIE creates programs of study and training for students, educators and professionals from all sectors.

These programs include the flagship Fulbright Program and Gilman Scholarships administered for the U.S. Department of State. IIE also conducts policy research, provides resources on international exchange opportunities and offers support to scholars in danger.

The workshop was called “Models and Best Practices in Internationalization at the Community College”, and explored various tools for internationalization at the community college, ideal for community college representatives who are looking for practical ideas on how to internationalize their campus.

Drew shared the two successful proposals he wrote for the California Colleges for International Education (CCIE) grants to support the internationalization of the Peralta Colleges and strengthening of the study abroad programs. These grants have helped jumpstart international student programs and activities, such as organizing an annual study abroad fair, creating a mentorship program for new international students (CONNECT), and establishing international student clubs on each campus.
