Abstract

Reflecting on current trends impacting higher education today, it is undeniable that pressure exists on institutions of higher education to fulfill the demands and expectations of students to acquire global competencies through curricular and co-curricular global experiences (Hovland 2009). According to the Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement (Center for Internationalization and Global Engagement 2012), one of the fundamental duties of US higher education is to prepare students “to live and work in a society that increasingly operates across international borders” (p. 5).
