Summary

This paper discusses a 3-year project to promote an international perspective within schools, colleges, and departments of education in the United States. Guidelines excerpted from this project's statement of purpose clarify the project's goals. These guidelines cover: (1) administrative leadership; (2) curriculum; (3) faculty development; (4) student awareness; (5) resources; (6) service to local school districts, community agencies, and businesses; and (7) research. The paper discusses basic expectations for educators and professors who are involved in international education programs and plan to apply in their classrooms, schools, and programs those principles which affirm racial and cultural diversity. These principles include: self-understanding; understanding and acceptance of pluralism; and an affirmative approach to implementing international/multicultural education in the total school environment. The working goals for any effective foreign student program are listed, and the benefits of the global perspective to colleges and universities are described. (JD)
