Center for International Education Ten Year Report: 2000-2010



he Center for International Education (CIE) celebrates more than 10 years of service to the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee (UWM) campus and community. Conceived in 2000 as a comprehensive international office serving all schools and colleges, CIE has overseen

impressive growth in academic programs, research and scholarly publications, study abroad options, international student recruitment and retention, and a wide array of public programs. You will learn more about our evolution and activities in this special anniversary report, which is a testament to the vision and hard work of so many UWM scholars, administrators, and students. Perhaps the signal accomplishment of the past decade is CIE’s contribution to the emerging field of global studies. Our undergraduate degree program in Global Studies, one of the first of its kind in the nation, now boasts five pre-professional tracks and currently enrolls more than 300 majors. Enrollments in other CIE majors, minors and certificate programs have witnessed tremendous

growth as well--more than 125% in just the last five years. Since 2001, CIE has provided more than 150 course development awards, totaling more than $300,000, to faculty members who have developed 74 new courses, 15 overseas programs, and 10 new language courses or programs. I am especially proud of this ambitious, interdisciplinary, cross-campus agenda that fosters new research in an effort to further enhance our teaching mission. Here, I point to our cutting edge international conferences, which began in 1999 with a focus on human rights and continued over the next decade with attention to such themes as urbanism, security, surveillance, migration, governance and law, to our most recent conference on the history and politics of food. As you will learn in this report, CIE has not only sponsored 11 conferences (and over 160 scholarly presentations), but has also ensured that they have an afterlife in the book series sponsored by Rutgers University Press, entitled “New Directions in International Studies.” These edited volumes have indeed charted new directions for scholarly research in international and global issues, and the series itself now boasts more than ten titles and over 65 contributing authors, many of whom are faculty and staff at UWM. But research represents only a partial picture of the accomplishments of our Center. Since 2001, CIE has secured both external and internal grants to support its programming, totaling more than $1.5 million dollars. As a direct result of this funding, we have seen growth in curricular offerings across campus as well as in language programs and our public programming, ranging from colloquia and speaker series to programs sponsored by the Institute of World Affairs. The Center reaches 9,600 people each year with its lectures, film series, conferences, publications, and dissemination networks. We are very proud of this sustained record of curricular innovation and public access to our multiple constituencies. We have also been hard at work in expanding UWM’s international student population as well as our education abroad programming. Since 2005, we have experienced a 54% increase in overall international student enrollment at UWM as well as a 70% increased in new freshman and transfer student enrollment. Our education abroad programs now include 86 programs in over 32 countries, more than double the offerings available to students in 2000. We currently maintain exchange agreements with 33 institutions of higher education in 16 countries and general agreements with 49 institutions in 15 countries. Through these agreements and partnerships, we are now poised as a campus to move ahead with an ambitious strategic planning initiative, led by a new International Council consisting of 35 faculty and academic staff members from across the university. This Council aims to position UWM as a globally-engaged university by taking stock of current efforts, identifying challenges to be overcome, and recommending strategies for realizing more meaningful internationalization on campus. As we mark an important milestone in our history with this 10 year anniversary report, I want to thank the faculty, students, administrators, and staff for their contributions to our research, teaching, and service missions. As we look forward to the next 10 years, I welcome everyone to become more involved in CIE as we continue to enhance, revise, reflect upon, and expand the international vision for our campus.

Teaching: Curriculum

Interdisciplinary International Studies The Center for International Education (CIE) is deeply committed to providing world-class educational opportunities to the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee’s (UWM) diverse and nontraditional student population. Fostering inclusive excellence requires a dynamic and integrated array of high quality international learning opportunities, exemplified by innovative interdisciplinary teaching, research, and outreach. It is this core belief on which CIE was conceived as a comprehensive international education office, uniting efforts to expand overseas study opportunities, and international student populations with initiatives to internationalize UWM’s on-campus curriculum, research, and public outreach programs. This approach is unique among postsecondary institutions; it reflects a conscious decision to strengthen collaboration and combine resources in support of a multifaceted, campus-wide internationalization agenda, for the benefit of UWM’s students, faculty, and community.

A Global Studies Agenda Perhaps CIE’s most unique dimension is its commitment to and successes in fostering international teaching and research across the curriculum. While many US universities have now developed central international offices that combine study abroad and international student and scholar services, few offer through those same offices the array of interdisciplinary international academic programs, co-curricular activities, and research support initiatives provided by CIE. This is less surprising when CIE’s origins are understood.

scholarly and community engagement in globalization discourse, has earned UWM national recognition as a pioneer in the growing Global Studies field.

Teaching Grounded in Research Originally envisioned as a jointly-offered international management degree, the Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies attained its current form through a multi-stage, multi-year, open door planning process. Its five-track structure was conceived in a two-day retreat that took place in January 2000 at the Hefter Conference Center. All interested campus community members were invited to attend both the retreat and subsequent planning meetings – a strategy which has helped to ensure that the curriculum is firmly grounded in UWM faculty members’ teaching and research interests. From that first meeting, a vision of a pre-professional studies program, focusing on globalization and involving myriad partnerships among UWM’s schools and colleges, was born. The core curriculum reflects the retreat participants’ conviction that “global competence” requires proficiency in a second language as well as significant overseas study and internship experiences. Funding agencies responded positively, with the US Department of Education and the American Association of Colleges and Universities providing grants to support Global Studies curriculum development. To capture the broadly cross-disciplinary discourse on transnational issues taking place at UWM, the New Directions in International Studies book series was initiated with Rutgers University Press.

CIE’s very formation was precipitated by the State legislature awarding funds to UWM in 1999 to develop a pre-professional, joint bachelor’s degree program in Global Studies. This event coincided with campus discussions about how best to strengthen international education, at that time housed in five different offices. It challenged UWM to establish an administrative structure that crossed campus boundaries and would be adequately positioned to work effectively with faculty, staff, and students in all schools and colleges. The degree provided more than the impetus for a new administrative structure; it provided an intellectual framework to guide CIE’s efforts to support and strengthen interdisciplinary international studies at UWM. Global Studies now drives a dynamic, integrated teaching, research, and outreach agenda that unites UWM students and scholars with teachers, journalists, business, and the public in dialogue pertaining to the manifestations and effects of globalization. This approach to program building, encompassing not only curriculum development but the research on which it is based, co-curricular learning, and CENTER FOR INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION


The Middle East & North African Studies (MENA) Certificate program has been revitalized through the leadership of a core group of committed faculty who, with CIE assistance, received a Title VI(a) Undergraduate International Studies & Foreign Language program grant to strengthen on-campus and overseas curricular offerings and co-curricular learning opportunities in 2009. MENA Studies enrollment has grown from six students in 2005 to 31 in 2010.

The degree’s first “track,” Global Management, was developed and approved by campus and the Board of Regents; it began admitting students in 2003. Four subsequent tracks, in Global Cities, Global Classrooms, Global Communications, and Global Security, began admitting students in 2006. In 2010 planning for a new track, on Global Sustainability, was initiated. Now with over 300 majors, the BA in Global Studies speaks directly to the interests of UWM undergraduates who seek a clear connection between their studies and career goals. Since 2009 a Global Studies Minor has fostered international studies across disciplines as it allows students in any major to integrate overseas, language, and globalization studies into their academic plans.

Total student enrollment in the majors, minors, and certificate programs supported by CIE, which also include Russian & East European (REES) and French & Francophone Studies certificates, increased 125% over five years, rising from 283 in Fall 2005 to 649 five years later.

Student Advising Services

Different Options for Diverse Students’ Needs

Helping students negotiate the array of available international learning opportunities is one of CIE’s key services. CIE staff and affiliated faculty provide extensive advising to students in international academic programs. Faculty program coordinators help students identify and attain their academic goals with advice about coursework, course selection, and graduate programs. Each program’s advisory committee and faculty coordinator are aided by two CIE academic advisors who guide students to the programs that best meet their needs, then advise on the programs’ requirements and course selection. They share academic, co-curricular, and funding opportunities via program brochures, newsletters, listservs, and social networking sites, assist students in applying for graduate studies and scholarships, and coordinate visits and panel talks of graduate program representatives. They provide career advising, offer an International Careers course incorporating aptitude inventories and discussions with professionals in a variety of fields, and coordinate a Careers Across the Map speaker series.

Global Studies is one of several interdisciplinary academic programs overseen by UWM faculty and supported by CIE advising staff. International Studies, UWM’s (and Wisconsin’s) first interdisciplinary international academic program, serves students seeking a degree based in the social sciences. The International Studies major and minor have also expanded over the past decade, having grown from under 100 to now 129 students enrolled in 2010. The curriculum was modified in 2005 to reflect changes in UWM course offerings. Today, International Studies students focus their studies on either: (a) international politics & US foreign relations; or (b) international economics & development. The curriculum incorporates language study with core courses in micro- and macro-economics, political science, history, and geography; a statistics or data analysis course; further courses in the student’s option, and the International Studies Senior Seminar.

CIE offers an average of 48 semester-long and 30 shortterm education abroad programs in 32 countries each year. Over 600 UWM undergraduates enroll – a number which has tripled since CIE was founded in 2000. Since 2008 CIE has expanded opportunities for undergraduates to conduct overseas research by partnering with the Office of Undergraduate Research in awarding funding for undergraduate overseas research opportunities. UWM students have studied, worked, and conducted research in China, Egypt, Ghana, Japan, Jordan, India, Italy, and Thailand, among other locations.

The Certificate in Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution is a popular interdepartmental “minor.” Its enrollment has more than doubled since 2005, when the administration moved to CIE, and currently 83 students are enrolled. Similarly, and commensurate with growth in UWM’s Asian language programs, the number of students enrolled in the Asian Studies Certificate has doubled from 24 to 51 in the same time period.

Interdisciplinary International Studies (Continued from previous page)

Study abroad advisors support site selection, registration, and credit transfer; one advisor focuses specifically on non-UWM programs, since students need access to a full range of options. About 16% of all UWM students who study abroad and 35% of those who go for a semester or longer enroll in non-UWM programs. This in-house support and policy of facilitating access are particularly important for Global Studies students, who are required to study and complete internships overseas.

Engaging Students and Scholars With its Global Studies agenda, CIE provides an inclusive rubric under which faculty and students from across UWM participate in cross-disciplinary dialogue and collaboration. With 13 faculty hired specifically for the Global Studies program, an additional 122 UWM faculty have helped to develop the Global Studies degree and Minor since 2000 via committees, planning meetings, and course development teams. To fill gaps in the curriculum, CIE has provided seed funding for faculty lines, including three focusing on Arabic language and Middle East studies since 2001. Since 2001, CIE has provided 159 course development awards totaling $300,600 to faculty who, in turn, have developed 74 courses with an international focus, 15 overseas programs, and 10 new language courses, modules, or immersion programs. Forty-eight UWM faculty have delivered papers at CIE’s annual conferences, in addition to the dozens who have presented their work at Global Studies Colloquia, Institute of World Affairs (IWA) public programs, and other CIEsponsored events. Fifty-one UWM faculty have had their work published in CIE publications, including the book series, Global Currents magazine, and global-e journal. And 245 faculty from 35 departments have received International Travel Awards to conduct and present their research. Enrollments in CIE Academic Programs

Honoring Our Past UWM’s commitment to international education precedes the formation of CIE in 2000 by over 40 years. As an urban research university providing access to high quality international education for a nontraditional student body, UWM has paved the way for the state and the nation. UWM’s International Studies Major was the first interdisciplinary international studies program in Wisconsin. Since 1957 it has prepared graduates for advanced studies and careers in international relations and economic development. The Institute of World Affairs (IWA) was founded in 1960 to provide outreach for the community and K-16 education audiences; still today (and now part of CIE), it is Wisconsin’s only World Affairs Council. In 1991, UWM’s College of Letters & Science established the Joint Center for International Studies (JCIS), first in partnership with Marquette University and then with the University of Wisconsin-Madison. JCIS served as the home to the International Studies program and a series of nationally-recognized international studies curricular, research, and outreach initiatives, until CIE’s founding in 2000. Together with the College of Letters & Science’s Study Abroad Office and the Graduate School’s Office of International Studies & Programs, JCIS was merged into the new Center for International Education. Its legacy as a teaching, research, and outreach center is what continues to set CIE apart from other universities’ central international offices.



Global Studies: A Closer Look The BA in Global Studies is unique in the nation for its integration of overseas study and internships as essential academic experiences contributing to attainment of the degree’s cross-cultural competency goals. Students typically complete both the semester abroad and internship in a country where the language they have studied is spoken; of the 75 students who have graduated by 2011, only six chose to complete internships in Englishspeaking countries. The internship, with at least 160 work hours, must be in a field related to the student’s track. For example, in 2009 a Communications student interned with CNN’s Beijing bureau, while a Security student worked for a Senegalese development organization. Students plan their internships with a CIE advisor, identifying their own learning goals and placements, which they typically secure on their own. While abroad, they enroll in a three-credit online course through which they share their experiences with one another and complete self-reflective assignments assessing their experiences against their goals.

With over 300 majors and five tracks in which students focus their studies, the Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Global Studies is one of UWM’s largest interdepartmental programs, offering a blend of academic and experiential training that has proven deeply relevant to UWM students’ learning and career goals. Co-sponsored by the College of Letters and Science (L&S) and the Schools of Architecture & Urban Planning, Business, Education, and Information Studies, the BA combines the strengths of liberal arts and professional studies with opportunities to develop competencies that are critical to understanding global trends, processes, and impacts: its central learning goal. Coursework exploring various dimensions of globalization, eight semesters of language, a semester abroad, and an overseas internship enable students to develop intellectual competencies and a knowledge base that serve as a strong foundation for graduate studies or entry-level jobs in the student’s chosen field. While completing professional studies for their tracks, students take three interdisciplinary courses on globalization and its impact on society and politics, economics and the environment, and information technology. A World Regions course examines globalization’s regional impact. Students discuss case studies in one-credit Think Tank Learning Community courses. They then take three advanced interdisciplinary courses within their tracks. Throughout their academic careers, students study languages and gain area expertise through electives, overseas study and internships, and research projects. Graduating students meet standard prerequisites for admission to a graduate program in their track’s related professional field.

The Global Studies Minor encourages students from every UWM major to incorporate a meaningful international dimension into their studies. It is intentionally flexible in order to reach students from varied fields (e.g. sciences, engineering) where the curriculum is heavily proscribed. It requires at least four semesters of language, two Global Studies lower division core courses, two upper division Global content electives, and three credits of study abroad.

The degree’s language requirement is designed as a semester rather than an explicit proficiency requirement in order to promote multilingualism and the study of less commonly taught languages (LCTLs), many of which are not offered through semester eight. Thirty-six percent of majors study LCTLs, and about 20% choose to study two languages. The semester abroad helps these students attain higher levels of proficiency in their second languages than might have been the case had they had not traveled abroad.

Beyond Borders: International Living and Learning Community To better engage students in international learning early in their academic careers, CIE established the Beyond Borders: International Living Learning Community in 2009. In its first two years, Beyond Borders has provided 46 first-year students with a uniquely integrated opportunity to connect with peers while studying contemporary global issues and discovering the array of international learning opportunities available to them at UWM.

Living and Learning Together As a member of a Living Learning Community (LLC) at UWM, students become part of a “community within a community” by living in the residence halls among their peers with similar interests. Beyond Borders: International LLC students have access to CIE-sponsored resources, programs, and activities that help connect them to other internationally-focused students, faculty, and campus organizations. Participating students live on the same floor and take at least one internationally-focused class together.

Making Connections Between the Global and the Local The Beyond Borders: International LLC enables students to understand globalization as a complex process with a wide range of local and global implications. This is done with an experiential learning approach, engaging students both inside and outside the classroom and fostering a supportive student cohort through organized activities. In their first semester, students have taken Global 101: People and Politics, the goal of which is to explore cultural and political relationships within globalization processes that are changing the contemporary world. Students also engage in co-curricular activities to further support their individual and academic growth as students. CIE staff work together with Global Studies faculty, resident assistants and mentors to plan an array of integrated social and cultural learning activities for LLC students. These have included movie nights, a monthly Culture Café event, study abroad information sessions, and lecture and discussion series based on cultural and political topics. Beyond Borders’ students have included students representing intended majors in Anthropology, Architecture, Communication, Education, Global Studies, Inter-Arts, International Studies, Journalism & Media Communication, Linguistics, Mechanical Engineering, Political Science, Pre-Law, Pre-Medicine, and Psychology. Two diverse cohorts have included four exchange students (from Japan), an international student (from Guatemala), and three students enrolled through the Academic Opportunity Center, which provides access to students whose prior education may not have adequately prepared them for college.

International Education Week In support of its co-curricular learning mission, the Center for International Education celebrates International Education Week with an array of activities each year during the third week of November. International Education Week is a joint initiative of the US Department of State and the US Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States. This annual celebration began in 2003 with UWM’s first annual International Bazaar. Since that time, CIE has expanded International Education Week programs and now hosts over a dozen events over the span of the week, partnering with units across campus. For example, International Education Week programs have included the Careers Across the Map series, informational sessions on Fulbright awards for faculty, an international trivia night, film screenings, Culture Café, and various guest lectures. 7

Snapshot: Growth in Language Programs Since 2000, enrollments in UWM’s credit-bearing language courses have increased by 57%. Perhaps most notable has been the expansion in less commonly taught languages including Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese, and Russian. Some part of this trend may be attributed to growth in overall campus enrollments during the decade, and to the new Global Studies degree’s eight semester language study requirement. Yet, given the magnitude of the expansion, it is more likely the combined impact of: (a) students’ increasing perception of the value of language study; and (b) language faculty members’ efforts to strengthen and expand on-campus instruction and overseas study opportunities for language students. Such efforts have yielded new Minors in Arabic, Chinese, and Japanese, a Committee Interdisciplinary Major in Japanese, a Chinese Teaching Certificate program, and a first semester course in Arabic for Speakers of French and Spanish. In the past decade UWM has begun new language programs in Afrikaans, Hmong, Korean, Swedish, and Thai. Courses in Lao, Serbo-Croatian, and Wolof were offered, but have since been phased out. New certificate programs in Celtic Studies, Hmong Diaspora Studies, and Scandinavian Studies encourage students to study Gaelic, Hmong, and Swedish.

UWM For-Credit Language Enrollments

Further developments in language programs encourage the study of languages for professional purposes. The Graduate Program in Translation has expanded its online offerings as well as languages covered. It now offers the French to English track fully online, and will launch German to English, Polish to English, and Swedish to English fully online beginning in Fall 2011; an interpreting track is also in development. At the same time, the re-established Linguistics Department has adopted and revived the Adult/University Level Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Certificate program for undergraduates and graduate students.

Teaching: International Students

International Students: Adding Value to UWM’s Campus Community In December 2008, UWM convened a year-long Task Force on International Education to lay important groundwork for strategic campus internationalization. In its final report, submitted in December 2009, the Task Force identified multiple strategies to more fully realize the vision of a globally-engaged university. These recommendations address a full range of international teaching, research, and outreach objectives and were oriented toward both qualitative and quantitative outcomes. Among its many findings, the Task Force recommended that UWM expand the number of international students within the campus community by incorporating international student targets within UWM’s enrollment management plan and growth agenda. This goal will have tremendous dividends for the university, by strengthening the vitality of its research, the dynamism of classroom learning opportunities, and the campus’ generation of critical tuition revenue. According to the Institute of International Education’s “Open Doors” annual report, international students studying in Wisconsin contribute $195.3 million dollars to the state’s economy. UWM has the second highest number of international students in Wisconsin and in 2010 reported 1057 international undergraduate and graduate degree seeking students, as well as English as a Second Language (ESL), and exchange students. As the State economy, and consequently UWM’s budget has experienced a steady downturn in the years since 2000, UWM’s quest for out-of-state tuition revenue has grown, with several schools and colleges increasingly turning their attention to international student recruiting in recent years. This concern has expanded awareness of the ongoing need for quality international student services. CIE’s founding in 2000 corresponded to a strengthening of these services. The establishment of additional staff lines and investments in staff development occasioned a subsequent radical reduction of admissions application turn-around times and waits for advising appointments. And in these efforts to expand and better serve UWM’s international population, CIE has persisted in relaying the critical message about the real importance to UWM of international students. Their true, intrinsic value lies in the experiences and perspectives they bring to UWM which consistently challenge their peers and instructors to rethink previously-held beliefs, engage in dialogue across differences in language and culture, and, in a single word, learn.

Undergraduate Students In the years since CIE’s founding, UWM has seen significant increases in undergraduate international student applications, increases in overall undergraduate enrollment, and increases in new freshman and transfer student enrollment. These gains carry financial implications, since nearly all international undergraduates pay full non-resident tuition for the duration of their studies. The numbers are as follows: • 44% increase in applications (244 in Fall 2005, 432 in Fall 2009) • 53% increase in overall enrollment (159 in Fall 2005 to 342 Fall 2009) • 70% increase in new freshman and transfer student enrollment (23 in Fall 2005 to 77 in Fall 2009)


Some of this growth is the result of a dramatic increase in sponsored students from Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. The estimated tuition revenue over eight semesters for this cohort of students is over eight million dollars.


Graduate Students Approximately 26% of UWM’s international graduate students pay full non-resident tuition from personal funds or home-government funding. The remaining students are partially or completely funded by UWM. Although applications have increased in the past four years, and while in 2009/2010 there was a significant increase of new international graduate students enrolled at UWM, overall graduate enrollment has declined. This may be the result of less-thancompetitive graduate student stipends. • 21% increase in applications (732 in Fall 2005, 928 in Fall 2009) • 9% decrease in overall enrollment (552 in Fall 2005 to 538 Fall 2009) • 22% increase in new freshman and graduate student enrollment (126 in Fall 2005 to 161 in Fall 2009)

Post-Completion Optional Practical Training During strong economic times (especially prior to 2008), approximately 90% of all UWM international degree recipients (both undergraduate and graduate) applied for post completion Optional Practical Training (one year of off-campus work authorization). The majority of these students found employment in Wisconsin. After the one year of practical training, employers have the option of petitioning the Department of Homeland Security for work visas for their foreign national employees. CIE estimates that more than 50% of the students who are successfully employed after one year have employer based petitions for work authorization. These petitions are subject to a “cap” and during good economic times this cap is reached early and quickly during the federal fiscal year. Since 2008, and as a result of the high unemployment rates nationwide, only about 70-80% of international students are applying for Optional Practical Training. Of those that do find employment, a larger majority ultimately receive work visas because the higher unemployment rate decreases the number of petitions being filed and increases the chances of success (the “cap” is not met quickly and reached later during the fiscal year). It is important to note that the majority of international students that apply for Optional Practical training successfully obtain work visas, and pursue a professional life in Wisconsin and the United States.

Strategic Planning for the Future UWM strives to attract and retain qualified international students through international institutional partnerships, recruitment initiatives, and innovative dual-degree programs. Following up on the recommendations of the Task Force, UWM has begun to implement a strategic plan for growing and sustaining its international student population. As the Task Force noted, “only by internationalizing the student learning experience across the UWM curriculum, through high quality on-campus and overseas courses, and co-curricular learning opportunities, will UWM prepare its students, both domestic and international, to face the professional, social, and civic challenges of an increasingly interdependent world.” 13


Teaching: Education Abroad

Expanding Access to Education Abroad CIE is dedicated to providing UWM students with high-quality, safe, and affordable international academic opportunities that allow them to develop knowledge and skills needed to become productive and successful members of the global community. Since its inception, CIE has partnered with UWM’s schools and colleges to increase awareness of education abroad opportunities, to promote intercultural learning, and to advocate for diversity in study abroad participation. “Diversity” in the context of education abroad opportunity has several dimensions. It signifies CIE’s commitment to supporting meaningful, articulated overseas learning options for students in majors across the UWM curriculum, including in fields in which study abroad has traditionally been more limited, such as the natural sciences and engineering. It acknowledges the particular importance of providing transformative opportunities for students whose prior experiences have been relatively circumscribed. And it carries a significant ethical responsibility for actively seeking to reduce barriers to education abroad access for UWM’s diverse, non-traditional student population. Since 2000, CIE has made great progress in expanding access to education abroad opportunities for UWM students, and strengthening support for faculty members’ efforts to establish UWM’s overseas curricula. To better value these achievements, it may be helpful to understand CIE’s history, the current status of UWM’s education abroad programs, and how UWM’s experience compares to national trends.



When CIE was formed in 2000, it joined two separate study abroad offices within a single center designed to serve as a “one-stop shop” for international education programs and services to UWM’s faculty and students. The benefits were quickly realized. No longer required to compete for students to enroll in their programs, CIE’s team of overseas program specialists focused their efforts on supporting faculty members’ work to expand education abroad opportunities. From 2000/01 to 2001/02 alone, study abroad enrollments climbed 25%, from 314 to 392. The number of UWM faculty-led study abroad programs almost tripled in that year, from 10 to 28 programs offered across Fall, UWinteriM, Spring, and Summer terms. These numbers continued to expand over CIE’s first decade. In 2009/10, 613 students enrolled in education abroad, representing a 95% overall increase in annual student participation. Student enrollment in long-term (semester or longer) programs has also increased, from 106 in 2000/01 to 171 in 2009/10.

Nationally, the number of US college and university students studying abroad has doubled over the last decade (Source: IIE Open Doors, http://www.iie. org/en/Research-and-Publications/Open-Doors). Much of this growth stems from the popularity of faculty-led programs. Diversity in study site locations and program types is also on the rise. Study in European countries remains most popular with US students, but interest is growing in study at nontraditional destinations. In 2010, 14 of the top 25 education abroad destination countries were outside Europe, and 19 of 25 were destinations where English is not the primary language. Opportunities to intern, teach, and participate in service learning while abroad are also on the rise.

Now, CIE manages a portfolio of approximately 50 study abroad and exchange programs, each carefully vetted to ensure its quality and fit with academic programs on campus. In addition, CIE partners with faculty from each of UWM’s schools and colleges to offer approximately 38 short-term, faculty-led programs each year. Designed expressly for UWM students, these programs are an excellent platform for learning about different cultures and global issues, without the need to be abroad for an extended period of time.



Education abroad participation at UWM has echoed these national trends. Since CIE’s inception, the annual number of UWM students earning credits abroad has doubled. Enrollments in short-term, faculty-led programs account for a large portion of this growth, given their attractiveness to students with responsibilities outside of school. In 2000, students participating in faculty-led programs accounted for approximately half of all study abroad enrollments. In 2010, the number rose to nearly three-fourths of enrollments, with programs offered by faculty representing nearly every school and college at UWM. The number of students studying abroad for a semester or longer and the number conducting internships

struggle with their attempts to expand study abroad participation beyond traditional student groups and majors. Since 2000 CIE has targeted many of its efforts to expanding opportunities for students who are frequently underrepresented among study abroad participants. These efforts have included;

overseas have increased, since these are explicit requirements for Global Studies majors. The number of countries in which UWM-sponsored programs are available has also increased from 21 in 2000/01 to 44 in 2009/10. UWM students are more frequently opting to travel off the beaten path; for instance, annual enrollments in UWM’s Asia programs grew from two to 57 over the decade. Much national attention has also been directed to the development of institutional safety and risk management practices for study abroad. In 2000 CIE was an early adopter of what are now considered best practices, establishing comprehensive emergency management procedures and a cell phone “hotline,” providing mandatory safety orientations, requiring international health insurance, and maintaining an emergency contingency fund. In 2010 CIE revised these emergency response procedures and established an International Safety Committee, comprised of representatives from across campus. The committee monitors world events and recommends programming decisions that promote the safety of UWM students, faculty, and staff overseas.

More Options, Better Access While UWM’s education abroad expansion has corresponded to similar developments in the international education field, this achievement is remarkable given UWM’s large non-traditional student population, which frequently experiences barriers to overseas study, given local work and family commitments. US postsecondary institutions continue to 15

• Establishing an Access Task Force to consider and recommend strategies to increase study abroad participation among UWM students of color; • Reaching out to UWM student services and advising staff who frequently work with students from underrepresented groups; • Expanding low-cost education abroad models such as student exchanges and emphasizing cost-reduction strategies to keep program costs within reach of more students; • Developing individual program budgets and working closely with Financial Aid officers so that students may use their financial aid for study abroad program costs; • Supporting the development of unique program models to meet an array of student interests, including short-term, service learning, research-focused, and internship programs; • Securing and administering grant funds to support overseas program development and student participation in programs in targeted disciplines; • Partnering with the Office of Undergraduate Research to plan and implement strategies to encourage undergraduates’ overseas research experiences; and • Expanding assistance for students applying for federal grants such as the Gilman Scholarship to support their overseas studies.


Teaching: Education Abroad

Expanding Access to Education Abroad (Continued from previous page)

CIE realizes it can neither predict nor offer programs to meet all students’ particular needs and interests. UWM students are therefore free to enroll in nonUWM programs abroad—programs that have not been vetted and adopted by CIE or a UWM department —and to pursue independent research, study, or internships abroad. CIE works with all education abroad students to ensure that they remain registered at UWM while overseas, can apply financial aid to the cost of their studies, and receive assistance in case of emergency. Currently, approximately 16% of all UWM students who study abroad and 35% of those who go for a semester or longer enroll in non-UWM programs.

This work has yielded an array of unique opportunities, such as a faculty-led, interdisciplinary program on globalization in Mexico and Cuba; a comparative service learning program in Oaxaca and Milwaukee; a multi-year, summer field research program examining environmental sustainability in Romania’s Danube River Basin; a summer business internship program offered by the China Studies Institute at Peking University; a community health program in Malawi; and regular UWinterim Africology programs in Ghana and Ethiopia. New programs have been developed to specifically address the curricular needs of students in the sciences and professional fields. For example: • • • • • • • • •

Marine Science in the Bahamas on the SV Denis Sullivan Geology of Volcanoes in Iceland Conservation of Rivers and Streams in Costa Rica Tropical Ecology in Panama Architecture and Historic Preservation in Japan and Sri Lanka Urban Planning in China Art, Anthropology and Culture in Peru Historic Archiving in Scotland Investigating Barriers to AIDS-HIV Information in South Africa

To further encourage overseas study, CIE has established the joint degree in Global Studies and the Global Studies Minor, both of which require study abroad. Global Studies Majors’ feedback indicates a strong appreciation for the semester abroad and three-credit internship requirements, since they provide additional assurance that the students will, indeed, realize their personal overseas study goals. The Minor was designed intentionally as a mechanism through which students may strengthen the intellectual connection between an overseas course and their academic goals, through further language and globalization studies that provide a deeper understanding of the context for their overseas learning. In 2009/10, 47 Global Studies students studied abroad.

As the program array has expanded, so too have the numbers of participating students in majors beyond Letters & Sciences. For example, in 2000/01, one Health Sciences and 47 Business students studied abroad; in 2009/10, those numbers had grown to 45 Health Sciences and 125 Business majors.

Moving forward, CIE will continue its efforts to strengthen the links between students’ on-campus and overseas studies while reaching out to more students with an expanded array of programs and strategies that enable them to see study abroad as a real and achievable opportunity. On a more practical front, efforts are progressing to facilitate student access by deploying a web service that allows students interested in study abroad to apply online. This technology tool will produce process efficiencies that should result in more students studying abroad, as well as improved service and communication with students prior to departure and while abroad.

Students of color have also increasingly opted to study abroad. From 2000/01 to 2009/10, participation doubled, from 39 to 80 students, including those who self-identify as multiracial. CIE’s deliberate expansion of in-house advising services to include informational programs and individual assistance with the development of study abroad scholarship proposals has led to an increase in the numbers of UWM underrepresented students who have received funding to support their overseas coursework. In 2010, these efforts were further rewarded by the Provost’s designation of funds to support Diversity Scholarships for overseas study.

Teaching: Education Abroad

Traveling Far and Wide: A Few Examples of Programs CIE offers short- and long-term study abroad programs. Most, but not all, short-term programs are led by a UWM faculty member. Faculty-led programs take place in the summer, during the UWinteriM term, or over spring break. Students on short-term programs adopted by UWM earn graded UWM credit. Long-term study abroad programs are at least a semester in length. Costs vary by program but consist of a comprehensive fee that covers academic instruction and usually housing, meals, transportation, and activities. Students earn graded UWM credit for completing study abroad programs sponsored by UWM.

Long-Term Exchange Program Ajou University in Korea The unique cultural and historic heritage of Suwon and easy access to the diversity of Seoul allows Ajou University and the surrounding community to offer students a rich educational and recreational environment. The University provides a friendly academic and residential atmosphere with classrooms, laboratories, libraries, residential halls, and recreational and cultural facilities on the main campus of 130 acres. Consistent with its emphasis on global education, Ajou University offers nearly 100 courses taught in English on a regular basis. They are designed to provide an excellent opportunity for both international and Korean students to study their chosen fields in an international atmosphere. Students can spend a year, semester or summer abroad at Ajou.

Long-Term Study Abroad Program Oidear Gael and Magee College in Ireland This English-speaking, semester-long study abroad program is divided into modules of varying duration between Dideas Gael, a language and culture academy in Glencolmcille, located in a small coastal valley community in the Donegal Highlands in the Northwest corner of the Republic of Ireland, and at the University of Ulster, Magee College, Derry, the second largest city in Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. These program sites and the structure of the program give participating students a incredible insight into Irish life. Coursework emphasizes Irish language and culture, but with the option of a broad array of additional courses taught by Magee College professors. Program participants also have the opportunity to participate in an internship for credit.



Short-Term Study Abroad Program Nursing and Community Health in Malawi This unique program, sponsored by the College of Nursing, gives participants a first-hand look at the way communities are dealing with health and wellness concerns in Malawi, a southern African nation. Students visit hospitals, clinics, social service organizations and the University of Malawi to learn how practitioners, community activists, and others are working for better health care for Malawians. Most visits are in and around Blantyre, the commercial capital of the country. Trips include visiting a family that hosts orphans, an extended trip into the rural areas around Lake Malawi, and an overnight stay in a wildlife preserve.

Short-Term Exchange Program International Summer and Winter University Programs in Hessen, Germany Through the Hessen-Wisconsin exchange, UWM students may participate in one of several short-term programs offered by different universities in the German state of Hessen. An International Winter University (IWU) is offered in Kassel and there are five International Summer Universities (ISUs) offered throughout the state. All programs offer a three-credit German language course for various proficiency levels, as well as several seminar courses taught in both English and German. Seminar courses vary by institution, but all focus on an issue of contemporary global relevance. The Kassel IWU has become increasingly popular with UWM Engineering students who enjoy the opportunity to study environmental engineering and renewable energy while living with local families. No previous German Language experience is required. These programs enroll students from around the world, so represent a wonderful opportunity to learn about Germany, plus the cultures and customs of other students.



Paying for Education Abroad

Teaching: Education Abroad

The cost of studying abroad varies by program type and length. Regardless of program type, financial aid including scholarships may be used to pay for international study. Using financial aid for education abroad is very similar to the way grants, loans, or scholarships are applied to the cost of education and housing for students staying on campus. Students participating in exchange programs pay for UWM tuition, room and board, international airfare, and any incidental expenses while abroad. Students on short-term study abroad programs don’t pay for tuition, but instead an equal share of the total cost of the program.

Wisconsin Study Abroad Grant The Wisconsin study abroad grant provides $158,000 in annual funding for qualifying undergraduate UWM students to help defray the cost of study abroad. Funding is contingent upon state budget legislation, so may not be available if the program is not funded. The amount of funding awarded per student differs from year to year based on the number of qualified applicants. Students participating in semester- and year-long programs generally receive more than students participating in short-term summer, UWinteriM, and spring break or studio programs. The maximum possible award is $2,000, with an average award of less than $1,000.

Provost’s Diversity Scholarship Each year, UWM’s provost provides $40,000 in scholarship funding to support students who (1) are the first person in their families to attend college, (2) come from diverse ethnic backgrounds (e.g., American Indian or Alaska Native, African American or Black, Hispanic or Latino/a, Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander), or (3) have a disability. This scholarship reflects UWM’s commitment to expanding the diversity of students who participate in education abroad programs.

Gilman Scholarships Established in 2000, the Gilman Scholarship Program provides awards for US undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide. The program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints. Qualifying students may earn scholarships of up to $8000. See page 11 for a listing of Gilman Scholarship recipients.



UWM Exchange Agreements

Exchange programs result from a formal agreement UWM has with an institution abroad. In an exchange program, a student from UWM trades places with a student at the partner university. The benefits of exchange include lower cost than most study abroad programs of similar length, full immersion into the host culture, and selection from a wide range of subjects and courses. Students earn graded UWM credit for courses taken abroad. Exchange programs are typically a semester or year in length, although short-term exchanges are also available. Because universities abroad usually do not offer student services on par with campuses in the United States, students on exchange are typically more independent and outgoing than students who go on study abroad programs.

Teaching: Student Mobility

Mapping Student Mobility Mirroring overall trends in globalization over the past ten years, student mobility has also increased, with UWM welcoming more international students to Milwaukee, and sending more UWM students abroad. Since 2000, UWM has enrolled international students from 78 different countries and seen the number of international students increase by 47%, from 625 in 2000 to 920 in 2010. In 2009/10, 613 UWM students studied abroad in 44 countries, more than twice as many country locations than in 2000.





Research: Fellows

Research: The Foundation for International Learning The Center for International Education’s deep commitment to fostering faculty research on globalization themes is what sets it apart from most other universities’ central international offices. Innovative scholarship that seeks to better understand today’s world is the foundation for UWM’s international education activities, and therefore a centerpiece of CIE’s efforts. The foundation for this work is UWM faculty members’ research interests and expertise. Through its book series, newsletter, electronic journal, colloquia, and international conferences, CIE provides venues for presentation, publication, and dialogue, support for research and conference travel, assistance with grant writing, and opportunities for course release time and scholarly exchanges.

Global Studies Fellows CIE’s support for innovative research continues to expand. In 2009/10 the Center for International Education established a Global Studies Fellows program to aid faculty in advancing their research on interdisciplinary topics relating to globalization, its cultural, political, social, economic, and environmental dimensions. Five fellows were selected for their projects that centered on the broader research theme of Globalization and the Ethics of Food. Aided by monthly Fellows’ meetings at which they shared their progress and devised strategies for how CIE could assist them, their work was featured in colloquia and in CIE’s spring 2011 annual conference, which focused on the same theme.

2010/11 Global Studies Fellows • Ellen Amster, Assistant Professor of History: Telling the Truth about Colonialism in the Body: Malnutrition and its Effects on Birth, Reproduction, and Infant Health in Morocco • A. Aneesh, Assistant Professor of Sociology and Global Studies: Life and Property: The Ethics of Plant Ownership • Kennan Ferguson, Assistant Professor of Political Science: Political Cookbooks • Kristin Pitt, Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature: The Vulnerable Body: Globalization, Migration, and Exposure in Contemporary American Narrative • Manu Sobti, Assistant Professor of Architecture: The Last Apples of Kazakhstan: Modernity, GeoPolitics, and Globalization in Central Asia



Supporting Undergraduate Research Overseas Since 2008, CIE has used funds from UWM’s Office for Undergraduate Research (OUR) to provide grants to faculty, academic staff, and students to develop opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in overseas field research. In some cases, students have developed their own independent research projects working alongside faculty advisors, and in others, they have assisted faculty with their research activities.

Research: Conferences

CIE Annual Conference Series Since its formation in 1999, the Center for International Education (CIE) has hosted a scholarly conference nearly every spring. The goal of the conference series is to explore the causes and effects of globalization from diverse disciplinary perspectives and serve as a forum for dialogue between scholars, theorists, artists, professionals, and practitioners from across the US and abroad. Through these conferences, the faculty, staff, and students at UWM have connected with experts from around the world. Held at UWM’s Hefter Conference Center, the annual conference runs for two days, is open to the public, and features anywhere from 15 to 25 speakers, plus special events which have included dinner receptions, student performances, and art installations. As each conference has had different organizers, the conferences’ globally oriented themes have originated from a variety of partnerships and collaborations among UWM faculty. These organizers have invited speakers from a wide variety of fields, including architecture, urban studies, sociology, film, history, political science, geography, and comparative literature. Distinguished international scholars who have presented at CIE’s conferences include: Ackbar Abbas, University of Hong Kong, Comparative Literature; Thomas Elsaesser, University of Amsterdam, Media/ Culture Studies and Film/Television Studies; Mette Hjort, Lingnan University in Hong Kong, Visual Studies; Jo Noero, University of Cape Town (South Africa), Architecture; Boaventura de Sousa Santos, University of Coimbra (Portugal), Sociology, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Legal Studies; Annabelle Srebreny, University of London, Media/Film Studies, Gender and Culture Studies; and John Urry, Lancaster University (UK), Sociology. Notable US scholars include: Ihab Hassan, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Comparative Literature; Saskia Sassen, Columbia University, Sociology; and Charles Waldheim, Harvard University, Landscape Architecture. Dedicated to deepening and expanding globalization studies, the conferences have explored tensions between liberty and authority as political, economic, and aesthetic structures change in light of migration, cultural conflict, developments in media and technology, and advances in the fluidity of capital and information. These issues are critical to studying globalization and demonstrate the central importance of interdisciplinary work to education in the 21st century. Integral to the success of CIE’s annual conferences has been the directorship of Patrice Petro, Vice Provost for International Education, and the team of staff at CIE who manage all conference logistics and promotional activity. These conferences have gained national and international prominence as well as an “afterlife” in CIE’s book series, New Directions in International Studies, published by Rutgers University Press.

global-e: Online Global Studies Journal The Center for International Education was a funding partner in global-e (, an innovative online journal of Global Studies, which began publishing in 2009. The journal is jointly sponsored by: the Center for International Education at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee; the Global Studies program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison; the Center for Global Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and the Center for Global Initiatives at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Now releasing new issues monthly, this online journal features short-form articles (roughly 1000 words) on a variety of topics and welcomes reader comments. With this innovative “blog” style, unique among academic journals, global-e offers current, cutting-edge perspectives on the emerging field of global studies. Commentaries focus on public issues, theoretical debates, methodological challenges, and curricular concerns. The journal also aims to build connections among university programs in global studies.



Research: Book Series

New Directions in International Studies Book Series Edited by UWM Vice Provost for International Education Patrice Petro, the New Directions in International Studies book series presents CIE’s interdisciplinary research agenda to a global audience. The series, published by Rutgers University Press, originates from CIE’s annual scholarly conferences and includes article and book-length contributions from conference participants. The series highlights innovative new approaches to reading back and forth between the local and the global, and between multiple forms of identity and difference. Focusing on transculturalism, technology, media, and representation, it features the work of scholars who explore aspects and consequences of globalization, such as the increasing flow of peoples, ideas, images, information, and capital across borders.

Aftershocks of the New: Feminism and Film History Patrice Petro • Publication Date: January 2002 The beginning of this century has brought with it a host of assumptions about the newness of our technologies, globalized economies, and transnational media practices. The essays here are joined by a common concern to chart another side to modernity–precisely after the shock of the new–when the new ceases to be shocking, and when the extraordinary and the sensational become linked to the boring and the everyday. Patrice Petro explores how the mechanisms of modernism, German cinema, and feminist film theory have evolved, and she discusses the directions in which they are headed. Rather than continue to sensationalize sensation, Aftershocks of the New aims to lower the volume of debates over the place of cinema within the culture of modernity. It accomplishes this by locating them within a more complex matrix of contending sensibilities, voices, and impulses.

Truth Claims: Representation and Human Rights Edited by Mark Philip Bradley and Patrice Petro • Publication Date: June 2002 Among the signal developments of the last third of the twentieth century has been the emergence of a new politics of human rights. The transnational circulation of norms, networks, and representations has advanced human rights claims in ways that have reshaped global practices. Just as much as the transnational flow of capital, the new human rights politics are part of the phenomenon that has come to be termed globalization. Shifting the focus from the sovereignty of the nation to the rights of individuals, regardless of nationality, the interplay between the local and the global in these new human rights claims is fundamentally redrawing the boundaries between the rights of individuals, states, and the international community. Truth Claims brings together some of the best new work from a variety of disciplinary and geographic perspectives in order to examine the making of human rights claims and the cultural politics of their representations. All of the essays explore the potentialities of an expansive humanistic framework. Here, the authors move beyond the terms–and the limitations–of the universalism/relativism debate that has so defined existing human rights literature.

Global Cities: Cinema, Architecture, and Urbanism in a Digital Age Edited by Linda Krause and Patrice Petro • Publication Date: July 2003 In Global Cities, scholars from an impressive array of disciplines critique the growing body of literature on the process broadly known as “globalization.” This interdisciplinary focus enables the authors to explore the complex geographies of modern cities, and offer possible strategies for reclaiming a sense of place and community in these globalized urban settings. While examining major cities including New York, Tokyo, Berlin, Paris, and Hong Kong, contributors insist that the study of urban experiences must remain as attentive to the material effects as to the psychic and social consequences of globalization. Accordingly, essays explore the implications of global culture for architecture, cinema, and communication but do so in a way that highlights the importance of the spaces between such metropolitan centers. These locations, the authors argue, serve as increasingly important “frontier zones,” where a diverse set of actors converge and contend for power and presence. Such a perspective ultimately adds nuance and meaning to our understanding of the heterogeneous urban landscapes of these global cities.

Global Currents: Media and Technology Now Edited by Tasha Oren and Patrice Petro • Publication Date: September 2004 Rhetoric about media technology tends to fall into two extreme categories: unequivocal celebration or blanket condemnation. This is particularly true in debate over the clash of values when first world media infiltrate third world audiences. Bringing together the best new work on contemporary media practices, technologies, and policies, the essayists in Global Currents argue that neither of these extreme views accurately represents the role of media technology today. New ways of thinking about film, television, music, and the Internet demonstrate that it is not only media technologies that affect the cultures into which they are introduced–it is just as likely that the receiving culture will change the media. Topics covered in the volume include copyright law and surveillance technology, cyberactivism in the African Diaspora, transnational monopolies and local television industries, the marketing and consumption of “global music,” “click politics” and the war on Afghanistan, the techno-politics of distance education, artificial intelligence and global legal institutions, and traveling and “squatting” in digital space. Balanced between major theoretical positions and original field research, the selections address the political and cultural meanings that surround and configure new technologies.

Rethinking Global Security: Media, Popular Culture, and the “War on Terror” Edited by Andrew Martin and Patrice Petro • Publication Date: April 2006 The proliferation of digital technologies in the twenty-first century has transformed our knowledge of near and distant events so that it has become impossible to separate the politics of war, suffering, terrorism, and security from the practices and processes of the media. In Rethinking Global Security, Andrew Martin and Patrice Petro bring together ten pathbreaking essays that explore how notions of fear, insecurity, and danger are fostered by intermediary sources such as television, radio, film, satellite imaging, and the Internet. The contributors represent a wide variety of disciplines, including communications, art history, media studies, women’s studies, and literature, and their essays show how both fictional and fact-based threats to global security have helped to create and sustain a culture that is deeply distrustful of images, stories, reports, and policy decisions. Topics range from the Patriot Act, to the censorship of media personalities such as Howard Stern, to the role that Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other television programming play as an interpretative frame for current events. Designed to promote strategic thinking about the relationships between media, popular culture, and global security, this book is essential reading for scholars of international relations, technology, and media studies. 37

New Directions in International Studies Book Series (Continued from previous page)

Beyond Terror: Gender, Narrative, Human Rights Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg • Publication Date: September 2007 In Beyond Terror, Elizabeth Swanson Goldberg argues that after human rights violations have occurred, the realm of representation–actual and fictional–is precisely the ground upon which struggles for justice and peace are waged in legal, emotional, and cultural terms. Moving beyond the myriad of fictional accounts that have portrayed the carnage of World War II, the Holocaust, and the Vietnam War, Goldberg focuses on emerging narratives about recent abuses, including those in South Africa, Rwanda, and Iraq. Through the lens of literary, feminist, and human rights theory, this important book examines the meaning and influence of films such as Cry Freedom, Three Kings, and Salvador, and novels such as Gil Courtemanche’s A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali, Pat Barker’s Double Vision, and Edwidge Danticat’s The Farming of Bones.

Indianizing Film: Decolonization, the Andes, and the Question of Technology Freya Schiwy • Publication Date: May 2009 Latin American indigenous media production has recently experienced a noticeable boom, specifically in Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia. Indianizing Film zooms in on a selection of award-winning and widely influential fiction and docudrama shorts, analyzing them in the wider context of indigenous media practices and debates over decolonizing knowledge. Within this framework, Freya Schiwy approaches questions of gender, power, and representation. Schiwy argues that instead of solely creating entertainment through their work, indigenous media activists are building communication networks that encourage interaction between diverse cultures. As a result, mainstream images are retooled, permitting communities to strengthen their cultures and express their own visions of development and modernization. Indianizing Film encourages readers to consider how indigenous media contributes to a wider understanding of decolonization and anticolonial study against the universal backdrop of the twenty-first century.

Side Dishes: Latina American Women, Sex, and Cultural Production Melissa A. Fitch • Publication Date: July 2009 Moving beyond the “main dishes” of traditional literary works, Side Dishes offers a provocative and delicious new understanding of Latin American women’s authorship and activism. The book illuminates a wealth of creative and intellectual work by Latin American women–editors, directors, cartoonists, academics, performance artists, and comedians–and explores them in light of their treatment of women’s sexuality. Side Dishes considers feminist pornography and literary representations of masturbation, bisexuality, lesbianism, and sexual fantasies; the treatment of lust in stand-up comedy and science fiction; critical issues in leading feminist journals; and portrayals of sexuality in four contemporary Latin American films. Melissa A. Fitch concludes with a look at the rise of women’s and gender studies programs in Latin America.



Aftermaths: Exile, Migration, and Diaspora Reconsidered Edited by Marcus Bullock and Peter Y. Paik • Publication Date: December 2009 Aftermaths offers compelling new ideas on exile, migration, and diaspora. Ten contributors– well-established scholars and promising new voices–working in different disciplines and drawing from diverse backgrounds present rich case studies from around the world. Seeking fresh perspectives on the movement of people and ideas, the essays take on a wide range of subjects such as the influence of religion upon diasporic consciousness, the conflict between the local and the transnational, the fate of historical tragedy in globalization, the reinvention of social bonds across migrations, and the agonistic dimensions of intercultural dialogue. Having reached a moment in history when it is imperative to question prevailing intellectual models, the contributors to this collection argue that the interconnectedness of world economics can exacerbate existing antagonisms or generate new exclusions.

Digital Dilemmas: The State, the Individual, and Digital Media in Cuba Cristina Venegas • Publication Date: February 2010 The contentious debate in Cuba over Internet use and digital media primarily focuses on three issues–maximizing the potential for economic and cultural development, establishing stronger ties to the outside world, and changing the hierarchy of control. A growing number of users decry censorship and insist on personal freedom in accessing the web, while the centrally managed system benefits the government in circumventing US sanctions against the country and in controlling what limited capacity exists. Digital Dilemmas views Cuba from the Soviet Union’s demise to the present, to assess how conflicts over media access play out in their both liberating and repressive potential. Drawing on extensive scholarship and interviews, Cristina Venegas questions myths of how Internet use necessarily fosters global democracy and reveals the impact of new technologies on the country’s governance and culture. She includes film in the context of broader media history, as well as artistic practices such as digital art and networks of diasporic communities connected by the Web. This book is a model for understanding the geopolitic location of power relations in the age of digital information sharing.

Beyond Globalization: Making New Worlds in Media, Art and Social Practice Edited by A. Aneesh, Lane Hall, and Patrice Petro • Publication Date: 2011 The standard analytic category of globalization has increasingly been called into question by scholars who reject appeals to theories of cultural, political, or economic homogenization or heterogeneity. Beyond Globalization endeavors to rethink how we understand global processes and practices by exploring them through their multiple emergences in multiple worlds, under different systems of observation, always mediated by representations, artistic interventions, and social practices. Bringing together the best new work of scholars within the social sciences, humanities, and visual arts, this collection highlights the ways in which mediated practices have become integral to global culture; how social practices have emerged out of computer-related industries; how contemporary apocalyptic narratives reflect the anxieties of a US culture facing global challenges of scarcity, economic crisis, and obsolete ideologies; and how design, play, and technology help us understand the histories and ideals behind the digital architectures that mediate our everyday actions.

Institute of World Affairs: Evolving to Meet Changing Campus and Community Needs

Outreach: IWA

In 2003, the Center for International Education (CIE) expanded its innovative approach to international education by integrating the Institute of World Affairs into its teaching, research, and outreach missions. The Institute of World Affairs was established in 1960 as the “world affairs council” for Wisconsin, catering mainly to members of the community who had a special interest in international issues. A member of the World Affairs Councils of America, the Institute functioned like a traditional council and focused mainly on public programs featuring prominent experts and leading practitioners.

• The Honorable Jamil Mahuad, Former President, Republic of Ecuador • Helen Caldicott, anti-nuclear activist and one of the most influential women of the 20th century • Amy Goodman, Executive Producer, Democracy Now! • Justice Richard Goldstone, Chief UN Prosecutor for Yugoslavia and Rwanda; Former Chair, South African post-Apartheid commission of inquiry • Ambassador Peter Galbraith • Jan Egeland, Former UN Under-SecretaryGeneral for Humanitarian Affairs and the Former UN Emergency Relief Coordinator • Azarius Ruberwa, Former Vice President, Democratic Republic of the Congo • John Prendergast, Co-Chair of ENOUGH: a project to end genocide and crimes against humanity

Unlike its peer organizations, the Institute of World Affairs is based at a university and this has added a unique dimension to the Institute’s programming. It has intentionally sought to more closely align its programs with UWM teaching and research initiatives, without losing its critical mission to strengthen understanding of world affairs issues in the broader community. When the Institute moved from its home in the UWM School of Continuing Education (located off the main UWM campus) to CIE, this potential was more fully realized. This move was much more than just a change of address. Rather, it was reflective of a more profound proposition: that international education requires crossing traditional boundaries in order to bring global events and issues into the campus community and to bring the campus community out into the world. Ultimately, international education is not just “about the world;” it is “of the world.” While the university must continue to provide access to international learning opportunities for Wisconsin, there is an equal and compelling need for the UWM campus community to engage in ongoing dialogue on critical global issues such as climate change, peace and conflict, human rights, economic development, and social change.

In addition to the annual Kennan Forum, the Institute of World Affairs hosts the annual Great Decisions Series, eight programs on topics chosen by the Foreign Policy Association of New York and run by world affairs councils all over the US. The Institute has also produced one of the longest running television shows in Milwaukee: International Focus, a weekly world affairs news program that airs on Milwaukee Public Television and has taped over 600 episodes. While many have ready access to mediated information about current world affairs, the Institute has undertaken ongoing self-assessment to determine both the need for its programs and most effective delivery methods. It is the role of the university to provide a framework and standard for understanding and making complex connections between the global and local contexts. This is the critical niche that the Institute of World Affairs fills with its innovative, evolving programs.

Over the years, the Institute of World Affairs has brought extraordinary speakers to the Milwaukee community. The list is long and includes notable figures such as Henry Kissinger (1975), Bill Clinton (1992), and George F. Kennan, who spoke at the first Kennan Forum on International Issues in 1990. Since 2003, the Institute has also hosted:



Since the Institute moved to CIE, the emphasis has been on leveraging high quality community programming to expand its reach and application to multiple audiences at UWM, Milwaukee, and beyond. A starting point for these efforts was to increase participation of UWM students in the activities of the Institute. In addition to making programs free for UWM students and staff, the Institute has also offered a series of classes for UWM students based on its programs, such as topical courses on Human Rights and the Roots of Political Islam, as well as courses based on the Great Decision Series, and one that prepared students to serve as staff for the Wisconsin High School Model United Nations.

over the privatization of water in Cochabamba, Bolivia that gave rise to what have been termed the “water wars.” The simulation allows participants to get multiple perspectives on the issue and decide for themselves how such issues should be resolved. Public programs, K-12 outreach, and teaching and learning resources are all part of an effort to make global issues available and accessible to diverse audiences. Media partnerships have been a key strategy. In addition to working with Milwaukee Public Television to air the International Focus program, the Institute of World Affairs has worked with public radio, both Milwaukee Public Radio and Wisconsin Public Radio, to produce shows with guest speakers. The Institute has historically maintained a cooperative relationship with print media, and recent economic developments in that field have led the Institute to invest in using online media to disseminate its content via web streaming and podcasting.

Model UN, an annual program for over 600 high school students and their faculty advisers, is a prime example of how the Institute has expanded its programming since joining CIE. In 2005, the Institute of World Affairs assumed responsibility for CIE’s K-12 Outreach programs, including the Global Studies Summer Institute, an annual program for K-12 educators that focuses on how teachers can bring international content into their classrooms. Additional K-12 programming has included periodic sessions on topics such as children’s literature (run in cooperation with the UWM Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies) and the International Studies Resource Network, which is a state-wide provider of international education curricular resources for K-12 educators. Building on these efforts, the Institute of World Affairs has also partnered with the World Affairs Seminar to design and implement this annual conference on global issues for high school students from several countries. The seminar is attended by approximately 300 students and is conducted in cooperation with Rotary Clubs throughout the world. The Institute also developed a K-12 component for the annual Kennan Forum by holding a Kennan Academy for high school students related to the Forum’s annual theme. The Academy features speakers from the Forum as well as an interactive simulation.

CIE has inspired the Institute of World Affairs to take an entrepreneurial approach to achieving its mission to help people engage with the critical global issues of our time. Recognizing this approach, in 2006 the Institute of World Affairs was designated the most dynamic mid-sized world affairs council in the United States by the World Affairs Councils of America. As the Institute moves into the future, its programs will more fully align with UWM’s international teaching and research agenda, using more creative approaches to bridging the UWM and the greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin communities. For example, the new Global Studies Fellows program at CIE provides a way to collaborate more deeply with UWM faculty working on international issues. There are also new technological approaches to “re-purposing” the Institute’s content in order to reach larger audiences. Lastly, the Institute will be exploring how to address more focused issue areas by organizing an annual UN Day program (in cooperation with the Downtown Milwaukee Rotary Club) and an annual “sustainability day.” The Center for International Education/Institute of World Affairs partnership has led to creative efforts to bring international issues into the classroom, and the classroom out into the world. As our learning environment changes, the Institute of World Affairs’ programs will continue to evolve to meet UWM’s and Wisconsin’s needs.

These interactive simulations aim to make program content accessible to students, faculty, staff, and community members. The Institute has produced a series of “learning objects,” which consist of print and video resources designed to illuminate multiple facets of complex global issues and allow participants to grapple with these issues. For example, the Institute produced a learning object based on the controversy 43

Giving to the Center for International Education The Center for International Education fosters international learning at UWM. The Center offers a wealth of international, global, and area studies programs, activities, and resources for educators, students, and the public. CIE is committed to promoting and sustaining exciting international education initiatives across the UWM campus, Wisconsin, and the nation. If you are interested in sponsoring a particular program, activity, or event, or you wish to provide funding for a current or new scholarship or research project in international education at UWM, please contact Patrice Petro, Vice Provost for International Education, at 414-229-4253 or All donations are tax deductible. Your generosity in supporting such programs will help to strengthen international education at UWM in the years to come, to underscore the quality of International Studies and Global Studies at UWM, and to recognize the best of our best students in a manner that will assist them significantly in their intellectual and professional development.



UWM’s Task Force on Internationalization Internationalization is not the latest academic fad, nor is it a simple add-on to existing practice. It is the single most important leadership challenge of the new century. …[P]residents and chancellors have both the responsibility and the capacity to take up the challenge and to create the new global university. – Report of the NASULGC Task Force on International Education, A Call to Leadership: The Presidential Role in Internationalizing the University (2004)

Future Planning: Task Force

Exective Summary

levels of preparedness for postsecondary work, and expend significant energy and resources evening the playing field for student learning. “International” is often viewed as a special interest rather than an integral part of who we are and what we do. Despite a strong commitment to international education shared by many UWM administrators, faculty, and staff, we are not yet on a par in our campus-wide internationalization efforts with peer institutions – let alone those to whose peer group we aspire.

The Task Force on Internationalization was constituted in Fall 2008 with the charge of ensuring that the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) is equipped to meet the challenges of the global higher education marketplace. As the university continues to implement its ambitious and farreaching Access to Success and Research Growth agendas, it must be relevant to its local community and state; but that relevance falls short if we are only thinking locally or regionally. With new State funding earmarked to support the development of major academic and research initiatives in areas reflecting local needs, it is important to place the local within the global context, make intellectual connections between and foster partnerships among both realms. Just as our faculty, our students, our curriculum, and our scholarship increasingly reflect that UWM operates in a transnational environment, so, too, do Milwaukee and Wisconsin citizens, corporations, and government entities. UWM can not fulfill its mission–it can not provide all students with access to a 21st century education, can not achieve meaningful growth in both sponsored and nonsponsored research, can not contribute to a vital regional economy–without taking steps to more fully realize its potential as a globally-engaged research university.

The Task Force turned its attention to the key question: how do we foster internationalization both within and across schools and colleges? UWM has already taken significant steps forward in setting the stage for cross-campus internationalization. With the establishment of the Center for International Education (CIE) in 2000, UWM was one of the first universities nation-wide to organize all major international functions within a centralized program office. This structure is now widely considered a “best practice” in the international education field. CIE’s reporting line to Academic Affairs, and the naming of UWM’s senior international officer title as Vice Provost for International Education, position that office to work across campus lines in fostering collaboration while simultaneously supporting the internationalization goals within each school and college. Yet while CIE plays an important facilitating role, the critical tasks of strengthening the international dimensions of teaching and research across the curriculum – through course development and delivery, curricular design, collaborative research, and student and faculty recruitment -- take place within the schools, colleges and departments and, most importantly, among individual faculty, staff and administrators.

UWM’s context presents challenges to realizing this potential. We are a large, decentralized university with great ambitions and limited resources. This structure inhibits information sharing, strategic planning, and follow-through on good ideas. We rely extensively on public funding and thus brand ourselves in light of our regional rather than our global impacts. We serve students with varying

It is therefore essential, if UWM is to achieve its goals, that our institutional leadership and key stakeholders share responsibility for internationalizing our mission, our learning, discovery, and engagement. Only by fully integrating international perspectives, knowledge, and activities across the curriculum, into the life of the university, can UWM advance its agenda. The Task Force for Internationalization full report, available on the Center for International Education’s website at, presents a vision of UWM as a globally-engaged university. It takes stock of current efforts, identifies challenges to be overcome, and recommends strategies for realizing more meaningful internationalization. Informed by ongoing conversations within national higher education associations, it considers action plans for strengthening the international dimensions of the university as a whole, its student learning, research, engagement, and outreach.
