ACE Internationalization Laboratory

Western Michigan University is participating in the American Council on Education's Internationalization Laboratory, a two-year program of assessment and planning aimed at strengthening the international education components of our undergraduate curriculum.

Over the course of the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 academic years, an array of activities guided by the ACE Laboratory format will be undertaken at WMU. Professor Maira Bundza, chair of the IEC, and Dr. Donald McCloud, dean of the Haenicke Institute, are co-chairing the initiative.
