CSU Chico Internationalization
From Jeff Layne
Professor & Chair,
CSU Chico Geography and Planning Department
Study Abroad Advisory Committee
Dr. Dean Fairbanks reports on a survey of CSU, Chico faculty about international students and about CSU, Chico students who have been part of the Study Abroad program. He notes a number of benefits to the presence of international and Study Abroad students on campus: diversity in student population, diversity in student experiences beyond the U.S., enriched learning experience for all, increased funding, and local economic impact. Questions were asked about whether faculty are familiarizing themselves with international students in their courses, whether they adapt teaching methods to the presence of international students, and what they need to succeed in better assisting these students.
