  7. Growing our international student population – target 10% intl UG in 4-5 yearscurrently 4.2% (982 of 23,135 UG) • Revenue • Global learning ‘at home’ for all our students • Workforce supply for Washington • Graduate students in STEM and other areas Issues/Opportunities: • Integration with domestic/other international students • Diversifying countries/cultures represented at WSU • Competing for students across U.S. and globally *Education has become a global commodity • Increasing R&D investment/university rankings/jobs at home (will U.S. students see value in a foreign degree?)

  8. Every WSU student should be graduating with leadership, global and cultural competency • 40% of jobs in WA tied to international trade (Nov 2012 “International Competitiveness Strategy for Washington State” by Washington Council on International Trade and the Trade Development Alliance of Greater Seattle) • 50+% of employers: College graduates should have both field-specificknowledge/skills and a broad range of skills/knowledge (Jan 2013 AAC&U Survey of 318 employers)

  9. Enhancing international research at WSU • Creating databases • RFA mining – connecting to faculty • Forming interdisciplinary teams • Metrics of impact/productivity • Partnering with Office of Research • Workshops • Travel awards • Informer Connecting with international partners for research synergies/funding opps Global Operations Advisory Council WSU GOLD (501C3) Workshops/Small group meetings with administrators, faculty, staff

  11. Connecting the dots…..Brazil • Undergraduate recruiting – “Scientific Mobility Program”– from zero to 9 undergraduates in 2012 • IIE program– mapped WSU resources/profile and generated strategic plan • Matrix linking research, education, engagement • UNICAMP in Campinas, UNIFEI in Itajuba, UFRGS in Porto Alegre, USP in Pirrasununga for synergies with WSU’s plant sciences, food engineering, biofuels, environmental engineering • Schweitzer Engineering facility in Campinas – internship? • May 2013 study abroad (Honors College & CAHNRS) • MOU with CAPES, Brazil’s Ministry of Education • Pending PhD agreement with Brazil’s CNPq(~U.S. NSF) • Bioenergy group linking with Embraer and Amyris-Brazil • Building WSU’s brand, profile and rankings

  12. APs play a vital role in all of this!Let’s partner…. • Go abroad e.g. the one to Cuba in June 2012 • Campus and regional activities - we’re trying to increase global learning opportunities right here ‘at home’.   • cultural activities; more integration in community projects, service learning, volunteering, K-12 outreach, etc. etc. • IP-International Center at the CUB • Friends and Family (a home stay opportunity for our visiting students/scholars) and • Friday Coffee Hour • Hiring the best and brightest faculty, staff, associates • Recruiting high quality UG and graduate students • Incentivizing international research and learning • Infusing Global cultural diversity competency …not just about students • And more
