Allan Goodman, president and CEO of the Institute for International Education, advised America’s university trustees that, “U.S. institutions of higher education need foreign policies, but not in the traditional sense of the phrase. Their leaders need to formulate institution-wide policies to assess their current engagement with the world and future strategic agenda.”
TU’s “foreign policy” is reflected in our mission statement, to educate “men and women of diverse backgrounds and cultures” to “welcome the responsibility of citizenship and service in a changing world.” As part of this mission, TU has identified internationalization as an institutional priority. The internationalization strategic plan seeks to make international, intercultural or global awareness a central formative experience for all TU students.
