CAMP global is a new initiative started by Millersville University’s (MU) Office of International Programs and Services (IPS) in the hopes of achieving comprehensive internationalization on campus. CAMP Global takes faculty and staff through a multi-year journey that includes learning about IPS’ vision and values related to internationalization.
The first cohort, which launched in Spring 2019, saw 4 faculty members attending several meetings with the program leaders, Dr. Patriece Campbell, Director of International Programs and Dr. Jason Petula, Faculty Coordinator of Internationalization. The first year culminated in a visit to Kenya with the EDU Africa Organization. The first cohort included Dr. Karen Rice, Dr. Aaron Haines, Dr. Marion O’Sullivan, and Dr. Deborah Tamakloe.
As a part of the program, CAMP Global participants travel in order to observe the policies and processes of foreign universities and organizations which empowers them to integrate new ideas into MU’s own international programs. Site visits allow faculty to gain first-hand experiences to create new MU Guided programs.
To participate in CAMP Global, faculty members must agree to lead a trip abroad within one year of return, while staff members must identify and improve policies and processes in efforts to promote internationalization. Next summer, the first year cohort will lead programs to Tanzania and Kenya.
