Faculty and Staff Resources

The Global Initiatives office is committed to helping faculty and staff across campus develop Internationalization at Home (IaH) initiatives. These activities can be incorporated into any aspect of the College鈥檚 function, from course content to student activities to support services.

The Global Initiatives office uses the following definition when referring to IaH activities:
鈥溾he purposeful integration of international and intercultural dimensions into the formal and informal curriculum for all students within domestic learning environments鈥 (

The formal curriculum is that which is taught in classes and is academic in nature, while the informal curriculum includes other areas of higher education, from student activities to athletics to residence life. Because all areas of a learning institution are designed with student 快播视频 and growth in mind, all areas are able to internationalize.

You don鈥檛 have to have overseas students physically or virtually in your course for you to be able to include global content. Any course can include global content, not only the social sciences or humanities. Likewise, you don鈥檛 have to be a faculty member to include global content in your department or area.

If your office or department would like assistance with developing an internationalize aspect of the formal or informal curriculum, please contact the Global Initiatives Office at global@tompkinscortland.edu for more information.
