Internationalizing the Curriculum (ITC)
The University of Michigan prepares its students for lives of significant international engagement. In line with this mission, and with support from the offices of the Vice Provost for Global and Engaged Education and the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, CRLT awarded two-year grants for courses or curricular initiatives that expand and enrich international themes, both in courses or departments with international connections as well as in those where international connections are not obvious.
Every proposed project was expected to accomplish one or more of the following.
- Increase student opportunities for meaningful engagement with an internationalized curriculum
- Incorporate innovative approaches, collaborations, and/or pedagogies appropriate to the international focus of the course
- Show potential for sustainability beyond the grant period
Assessment and Reporting Requirements
In addition to collaborating with CRLT to assess their projects, all grant recipients were asked to help disseminate results by completing a brief web form within three months of the project’s completion. These reports are publicly displayed on the CRLT Grants Reporting website.
