Session Title: Expanding ACCESS to International Students

Session Abstract: Mason’s recent foray in international education is an innovative new foundation year program for international freshmen designed to increase their academic English language skills while enrolled as full-time students. The presenters will discuss the historical development of the program (beginning with a university encounter with INTO); its academic foundation utilizing cross-departmental collaboration between university and intensive English programs; its implementation this past fall providing cohort-style, credit-bearing, custom curriculum, along with academic and student services designed for students studying abroad; research-backed program revisions and implications for comprehensive approaches to language-supported internationalization in U.S. higher education, and the development of a new university entity developed to manage administration of the program which builds further on interdepartmental partnerships.

* Rick Davis, Associate Provost, Undergraduate Education, George Mason University
* Karyn Mallett, Assistant Director, English Language Institute, George Mason University
