MOBILITY AND DIVERSITY : DEVELOPING GLOBAL CITIZENS
Strategic Vision and Framework Leading to Global Citizenship
In the current context of global trends, it is increasingly important for universities to play an active role to contribute to developing globally competent, confident and connected graduates who embrace diversity. Universities often claim that they are doing so by offering a series programs and opportunities for students. What is common in that approach is multiple silos of programs and isolated results that often make it difficult to understand the university-wide impact. The universities should build a global strategy to achieve their strategic vision and need one framework as the guidepost for benchmarking current practice and executing vision for all stakeholders.
This session presents the Strategic Framework for Globalization as a tool to address the common pitfalls and bring synergy to capture the connection and impact of various university initiatives. Using the strategic relationship between Ohio University and Malaysia as a case study, this session will explore the best practices in utilizing the strategic framework to capture the story, engage the stakeholders, and make investment decisions to help the university move in the right direction to achieve its strategic vision and develop global citizens.
