Prairie View Global View/ Prairie View Goes Global Experience
Prairie View A&M University in its 2016-2021 strategic plan has a key goal of “globalization and outreach.” The purpose of this strategic goal is to better prepare students to compete for employment and post-graduate education in the global marketplace. The University Administration has promoted internationalization of the collegiate experience and has established an international affairs department responsible for assisting students, faculty and staff with identifying and accessing global experiences. Moreover, partnerships that facilitate collaborative study and research have and are being established with universities in Africa, Australia, China and Mexico to name a few. These partnerships are extremely important.
According to a report from the Department of Education, international education is vital for students to be competitive and efforts to provide opportunities for learning new languages and different cultures in the primary, secondary and post-education of students; particularly those who are the most academically vulnerable where research has shown that it helps them in academic retention and completion (Department of Education – https://blog.ed.gov/2015/11/the-importance-of-an-international-education-for-all-students/).
The Title III programs/projects will be designed to improve academic success and will include, but are not limited to, creating an International/Domestic Family and Friends Program, Education Abroad Faculty and Student Ambassadors Programs with the ultimate goal to develop infrastructure and programs to support the internationalization of Prairie View A&M University.
