Higher Learning Commission Quality Initiative
The University of Tulsa has proposed the Strategic Plan for Comprehensive Internationalization as our Quality Initiative (QI) under the Open Pathways for Reaffirmation of Accreditation. The QI focuses on four milestones that will establish international, intercultural or global awareness as a central formative experience for TU undergraduate students.
The SPCI is a ten-year plan adopted and begun in May 2011. While important progress has already been made with recommendations in the SPCI, work continues in all areas with key constituencies involved across campus. The QI identifies four milestones that will establish international, intercultural or global awareness as central formative experiences for TU undergraduate students as follows:
- Develop and fully implement the TU Global Scholars program.
- Deepen interdisciplinary teaching around critical global issues associated with TU’s research institutes, including energy, technology and environment; indigenous populations; community health; and entrepreneurship.
- Significantly increase participation in study abroad by developing education abroad tracks for each undergraduate major.
- Deepen the engagement between TU’s undergraduate international students and domestic students, both in and out of the classroom.
