Phase II of the International Strategic Plan Open For Comments

Global Talk Series

The Center for International Affairs invites the campus community to review and discuss the current draft of Phase II of the plan for internationalization. Phase II of the plan for internationalization, which can be read in full here, has been developed incorporating and building upon the existing guiding principles of Phase I, the achievements of the past four years, and the changing needs of CWRU and its constituents. The Center hosted two open forums where recommendations for Phase II of the plan for internationalization were presented and the campus community was invited to deliberate and provide input:

In January, 2012, the CWRU community adopted the first ever Plan for Internationalization (Phase I). By collaborating with and supporting faculty, staff, and students, many of the measurable recommendations set forth in the Phase I have been met or are on target to be met within the coming years. Moreover, CWRU’s vision and mission as set forth in CWRU’s new strategic plan 2013-2018 Think Beyond the Possible demonstrates a continuing commitment to promoting international endeavors and expanding CWRU on the world stage.

Phase II of the Plan for Internationalization concentrates more on graduate and professional students, research, and alumni. In addition, Phase II contains several specific recommendations—such as the recommendation regarding communication—that will provide the infrastructure and support to move the university towards its objective of fully realizing its international potential.

College of Arts and Sciences: Discovering the History of the Universe in Antarctica

Associate professor of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Case Western Reserve, Ralph Harvey recently finished his 22nd expedition to Antarctica with the Antarctic Search for Meteorites program (ANSMET). ANSMET, founded in 1976 and funded by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), pursues recovering meteorites from Antarctica to help scientists from around the world seek an understanding of the history of our moon, Mars, and the universe. Some of these meteorites are left-overs from the birth of our solar system 4.6 billion years ago. Harvey and colleagues recently released a new book entitled 35 Seasons of U.S. Antarctic Meteorites: A Pictorial Guide to the Collection.

Antarctica is regarded as the world’s best place to find meteorites given the ice desert landscape of the continent and glacial motion that can concentrate the specimens in mountainous areas. Because of the special nature of the continent of Antarctica, and the efforts of the founder of ANSMET, William Cassidy, an emeritus professor of geology and planetary sciences at the University of Pittsburgh, the samples of meteorites found by ASMET are available to scientists around the world, making this a special joint-international effort, and not a competition.
