Internationalization through Technology:  

An Award Program Presented by the American Council on Education in Collaboration with the SUNY COIL Center Sponsored by Asahi Net International

The Award Program: The American Council on Education (ACE), in collaboration with the SUNY COIL Center, is pleased to announce an award program, sponsored by Asahi Net International (ANI), which will recognize, support, and promote the use of technology to enhance institutional internationalization and global competence among students at U.S. colleges and universities. Technology holds great promise for supporting activities that strengthen institutional global engagement through meaningful international collaborations for faculty and staff, and for providing students with experiences and opportunities through which they may acquire global competencies—the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to live and work in our multicultural and interconnected world.
