Internationalization Lab

UMB is taking part in the American Council of Education’s Internationalization Laboratory from August 2018 – July 2020.


The goals of the internationalization process are to support and increase participation in diverse, global, and intercultural curricular and co-curricular learning opportunities that prepare students to be globally competent citizens; build an inclusive, welcoming and interactive campus; expand internationally focused research and scholarship; and collaborate with our surrounding communities using a global, community-oriented perspective.


UMB faculty, staff, administrators, and students are working with experts at ACE and across the country to assemble an internationalization leadership team on campus; analyze current internationalization activities and articulate institutional goals; and formulate a strategic action plan to take internationalization efforts forward. ​
