"Transnationalism, International Migration, Race, Ethnocentrism, and the State"
Europe and the United States are facing a critical set of issues on international migration. At no time in history are more people moving around the globe with major impact on national policies of citizenship, residency, social change, and support structures. The project will offer students the opportunity to take a specially designed curriculum at foreign universities and participate in summer institutes on transnational forces such as ongoing migration flows and long-term "foreign" populations.

"The Global Imperatives for Architectural Education"
In architecture, the increasing globalization culture is a phenomenon of the "global village" that engenders complex issues, crossing cultural, social, and political borders. The education of future architects will increasingly be devoted to international practice. This curriculum project will focus on broadening the pedagogy and perspectives of architectural education in the

"Promoting Transatlantic Mobility of Pharmacy Students"
The purpose of this project is two-fold: to support a semester-long study abroad for undergraduate pharmacy students and to produce a self-contained learning module on the different structures of health care provision, legal medical drug issues, and the manufacture and licensing of pharmaceutical products. Students going abroad will participate in a work placement and experience first hand the study and practice of European and American pharmacoeconomic frameworks.

The last decade has seen the rapid globalization of architectural practice and the systematic movement toward a single architectural standard for professional accreditation between American and European schools. The key issues are a greater emphasis on language training for architects and the introduction of new coursework covering modes of international practice. The project will implement a series of design studios involving students from all participating institutions.

The internationalization of trade means that multinational manufacturers must incorporate design features that address the economic and cultural needs of the international market. These industries favor a technical workforce with international training, allowing it to understand the needs of foreign clients. Intercultural differences are intensified in technical fields such as computer modeling and simulation that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. The project will develop a curriculum that increasingly is focused on solving problems for complex, international computer simulations.

"Interdisciplinary/International Curriculum on Energy and the Environment: Innovative Technologies"
This project will develop an interdisciplinary and international curriculum on energy and the environment. The consortia members will develop a modular educational program that will focus on innovative ways to use energy technologies and to understand social ethical, and cultural issues associated with use of energy and the environment. Students will work in multicultural teams on multinational projects in international settings. Perspectives from experts in engineering, science, social science, and the humanities, will be made available to students.

"Transatlantic Textile Network"
The international consortia will enhance the ability of students to work on textile projects in transatlantic teams. To accomplish this aim, the consortia will build a cooperative network among the partnering institutions to give students the opportunity to study, to work abroad in internships, and to improve their understanding of textile commerce. The project also will involve non-mobile students through the creation of a virtual network and transatlantic student projects. Ultimately, the project will move textile education into a transnational education arena encompassing training of textile managers, engineers, and technologists who will function in transatlantic teams.
